Ingredients 

• 2 tbsps olive oil
• ¼ cup chopped walnuts
• 2 tbsps chopped fresh parsley
• 1 tbsp coarse-ground prepared mustard
• 1 tbsp crumbled blue cheese
• 3 cups cooked fettucini
• 2 cups mixed baby greens
• Fresh lemon juice
 

Optional additions: 

• Roasted chicken
• Grilled vegetables
• Fresh basil
 

Preparation

• In a large bowl, combine olive oil, walnuts, parsley, mustard, and blue cheese. Fold in chilled pasta, along with any optional ingredients.
• Serve greens with pasta on top. Add lemon juice and salt to taste.
 
TIP: Toasting the walnuts makes this salad more flavourful and takes only a few extra minutes. You can do this in a small dry pan or in a 350 degree oven. Watch them closely so they do not burn!

Tomato and Watermelon Salad

Tomato and Watermelon Salad
Bursting with flavour, this fresh tomato-watermelon salad can also be served over a bed of mixed greens. Big juicy chunks of tomato and watermelon deliver lots of gusto, but to prevent large bits of red onion from taking over, cut a whole red onion in quarters before thinly slicing.
