Fruit and Pasta Salad = Yummy Yummy!!!!!

Hello everyone.  Today I am bringing you a simple yet delicious salad.  You can have this for lunch, dinner or a snack.  When I first seen this salad in an All You Magazine I thought it was a bit weird but man it looked so scrumptious on the page.  So I gave it a try.  

Today I am going to share with you all how simple this is.  You can feed alot of people on this one and it is affordable. So here it goes:

1 box of Creamette or any kind of spiral colored noodles
Spinach de-stemmed ( I chose Organic)
Strawberries, blueberries and pineapples.  (really any fruit you want)
Chicken Breast (Canned from Meijer) You can also cook it

You cook the noodles, rinse in cold water and add to the bowl
Take your fruits and just start layering them on top of the pasta
(be sure you check for stems and that they are all cleaned well)
Take the dressing and pour it all over the mixture until it is all gone
toss to mix the dressing in real good
Let chill for about 30 minutes or so in the fridge 
(this will give it time to get the dressing mixed well and marinate the fruit)
Take your baby spinach and de-stem it and put it on a plate
Scoop salad on spinach and enjoy.

It is a super simple yet delicious dish.  My family tears this up.  The best part is you can add any kind of fruit to it you want.  You can even add nuts if you want to.  It is super super simple and the longer it sits to marinate together the better it will taste.

No matter what time of the year you make it you will have a deliciously light and tasteful meal.  Even though this is strawberries, blueberries and pineapple the taste really mixes well with one another.  You have your sweet and tart that counteract each other and really harmonizes the dish.

If you have tried this I would love to hear your thoughts on it.  So be sure to drop me a line and let me know if you have or not or if you will.  I would love to get your feed back as well.

Hope everyone has a great evening and a wonderful week ahead.
