Farfalle Pasta Salad Mediterranean Style

15

Farfalle Pasta Salad Mediterranean Style is a great pasta salad with super fresh ingredients like cucumbers, tomatoes, onions and peppers. Kalamata Olives, marinated artichokes and feta cheese, combine to enhance those mediterranean flavors. Dressed with a red wine based vinaigrette, instead of mayo, makes for super light and refreshing spin on a classic.

Who doesn't love having a good Caesar salad! However, having Caesar salad in restaurants is never a healthy choice. As, it is always loaded with excess fats and calories. I have prepared an entirely healthy homemade Caesar salad in a tortilla bowl that rivals that of any restaurant.

Toss with the crisp lettuce, drizzle with the guilt-free flavorful dressing and finally top with croutons and cheese for the perfect main course!
