Greek flavors predominate in this vegetable-packed salad with cooked shrimp. Using Tri-Color pasta brightens up the presentation.


Step 1

Cook the Barilla® pasta for 1 minute less than the time indicated on the package. Drain pasta and drizzle with some olive oil to prevent from sticking. Place pasta flat on sheet trays or hotel pans and cool in a blast chiller. Alternatively, cool it down in a walk-in cooler. Store in zip lock bags or sealed plastic container; refrigerate and use within several hours.

Step 2

Blanch or saute the shrimp; set them aside to cool.

Step 3

In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, and lemon juice. Add the remaining ingredients, including the shrimp and pasta. Check the seasoning and refrigerate until needed.
