O’dang Halloween Pasta Salad


Ingredients

  • 1 (16 ounce) box farfalle pasta
  • Black food coloring
  • 2 cups spinach or mixed greens
  • 1 orange bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup marinated mini mozzarella balls, halved
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ½ cup O’dang Balsamic Feta Dressing
  • ¼ cup sweet onion, chopped
  • ¼ cup black olives, sliced


Instructions

  1. Prepare pasta according to package instructions. Drain and allow to cool completely.
  2. Place cooked pasta in a bowl with just enough water to cover it. Add black food coloring and stir to combine. Soak the pasta for 5 minutes, stirring frequently to distribute the color.
  3. Place the colored pasta in a strainer and rinse well until the water runs clear.
  4. Put colored pasta in a bowl and toss with the remaining ingredients. 
  5. Optional: place the olives on top of the mozzarella balls to make "eyes" on the pasta salad.
