Italian Goddess Pasta Salad2019-08-16
A scratch-made green goddess dressing brings dynamite color and savory umami flavor to a pasta salad with antipasto-like cues from prosciutto, cherry tomatoes and boccancini.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil and season with salt. Cook the pasta for 8 minutes. Drain, and toss with some oil. Place onto a sheet tray then into the fridge to cool down.
In a blender, combine the parsley, basil, oregano, garlic, anchovy, lemon, balsamic and olive oil, then puree until smooth. Place the sauce into a bowl then fold in the mayonnaise and season with salt and pepper to taste.
When you’re ready to serve, combine the pasta with the sauce and arrange the remaining ingredients on top of the salad.
