Potlucks, pool hopping, no school, and kids home all day is exactly what makes me think of summer.  Pasta Salad also screams spring and summer! I love a quick easy salad that can be made as an entree or a side dish. A bonus is when they are delicious without a protein but for some protein is a must for dinner. So throw in some grilled chicken in this delicious salad and make your man in your life HAPPY!


1 box bowtie pasta
1 pkg feta cheese
1 bottle of Girards Greek Feta Vinaigrette
1 pkg.baby tomatoes
1 pkg. spinach
2 avocados
red onion (optional)


Cook pasta as directed on the box. Because the pasta needs to be cooled you could cook it the night before or allow time for it to cool. I cut my tomatoes in half to keep small for my kids. Cube your avocados. My kids and husband or semi anti spinach eaters so  I cut my spinach smaller then they will actually eat it. Toss all together in a fun summery bowl and there you have it, you are done!

There you have it quick and easy, just like us mamas need.
