A pasta salad with fruit,celery,and pecans.The homemade dressing is simple and has NO MAYO!!
Fruit plus pasta is definitely a unique combination,but it is so delicious!这个沙拉灵感来自当地一家以意大利面食沙拉闻名的咖啡馆。When they put whole grapes and berries in one of their pasta salad creations,I had to try it.It has quickly become one of my favorite salads and so I definitely had to re-create it for the blog.
Their famous salad also has some quickly blanched broccoli,so that's a great addition as well if you're feeling ambitious.For this recipe,I've opted for a slightly simpler version — grapes,dried cranberries,strawberries,celery,山核桃是你唯一需要的配料。把它们与意大利面和最美味的柠檬罂粟酱（不含MAYO）一起扔，我想你会同样痴迷于水果意大利面沙拉！!
- 1/2 of 1 full box (so use 8 ounces) Bowtie Pasta
- 1和1/2 cups chopped strawberries stems removed
- 1和1/2 cups red grapes sliced in half
- 2 茎秆 celery chopped
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans* or sub slivered almonds
- 3/4 cup dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice 2-3 large lemons
- 1 茶匙 lemon zest
- 1/2 茶匙 onion powder
- 1 茶匙 Dijon mustard do not use any substitutes
- 1/2 茶匙 salt
- 6 tablespoons white sugar
- 2/3 cup olive oil or vegetable or canola oil
- 1 tablespoon poppyseeds
Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain and rinse in cool water.
同时准备原料-切碎草莓（去梗），halve the grapes,把芹菜切碎，and coarsely chop the pecans.
Combine the strawberries,grapes,celery,pecans,and dried cranberries in a large bowl with the completely cooled pasta. Toss together.
Meanwhile prepare the dressing: Combine the lemon juice,柠檬皮，onion powder,第戎芥末，salt and sugar in a blender or food processor.Blend or pulse until completely smooth.Slowly pour in the oil and blend.
如果不立即享受，do not add the dressing until right before eating.
When ready to enjoy,把调料和沙拉拌在一起。You may not use it all,so add to desired preference and save any remaining dressing for other salads.
*I like to toast the pecans.要做到这一点，spread them evenly in a dry skillet over medium heat.Stir around for 5-7 minutes or until fragrant.Be careful because the nuts can very easily go from toasted to scorched.
