Introduction

I love suddenly salad, but it's so high in calories! This is my answer to it - using high fiber pasta, fat free dressing, and lots of veggies! I love suddenly salad, but it's so high in calories! This is my answer to it - using high fiber pasta, fat free dressing, and lots of veggies!

Ingredients

    half a box of pasta - Barilla plus is my fave (tastes like regular but with the fiber of wheat)
    half head of cauliflower
    small head of broccoli
    4 stalks of celery
    half a red onion
    a small can of sliced black olives
    cilantro to your taste (I like a lot)
    sliced green olives with pimento
    a few generous pinches of feta - I like garlic feta
    about 1/3 bottle of fat free italian - spicy/zesty preferred
    italian seasoning
    pepper
    parsley

Directions

Cook and drain pasta. I cook mine with chopped garlic to add flavor. Rinse pasta so it's room temperature. Next, chop and add all the veggies, and mix everything together. Add both olives, feta, and cilantro and mix again. Add all seasonings (minus the dressing) and mix again, making sure you see seasoning on each noodle. Add the dressing and mix one more time.

It tastes better if you let it sit overnight, but it can be eaten immediately. Makes about 10 good size side dishes, or you could add grilled chicken/shrimp/whatever and make it a meal.
