Pasta with Assorted Vegetables

This one is a hit with vegetarians. It doesn't matter if it's gluten free or whole wheat, it matters even less how it's shaped. We all love our pasta. Pasta goes a long way to complement the nutritional value of many vegetables. As a result, pasta with assorted vegetables like tomatoes and cucumbers form an excellent salad mixture.

This salad is best when refrigerated and cold, as it sublimes the acidity of the raw vegetables. The pasta can be half-cooked or just soaked. A mild Feta dressing usually accompanies pasta with vegetables and is best served with wine or milk. You should try this salad mixture over your summer.

Watermelon Feta Salad

Watermelon on its own with a few additives forms an excellent salad. The Watermelon Feta features some sliced Feta cheese and some chopped Watermelon. Additives like mint leaves, oil, vinegar, and onions give this salad an extra aroma and taste. The salad is relatively easy to prepare, as it is just a mixture of the ingredients mentioned above.

Like most salads, the Watermelon Feta is also best when refrigerated and is best served with wine. This summer, the Watermelon Feta should certainly be on your menu.

Berry Salads

As the name implies, the Berry Salad is a mixture of assorted berries. The variety of berries available could vary with your region. However, the Berry Salad is best with strawberry, blackberry, and raspberries. You can include other berry types depending on your taste. However, the strawberry, blackberry, and raspberries mix perfectly to ensure a great taste.

Additives like mint leaves and radishes are included to finish the dish. You will not need much salad dressing as these berries are already full of flavor and taste.
