Pasta salad with Beets

This is so delicious. I am not not a big fan of heavy pasta salads . This salad is light and filled with all kind of healthy veggies.

Ingredients:

1 Baked beets

1 cup of cooked colorful pasta of your choice

1/2 cup of cut sugar snap peas

1 table spoon parsley

1/2 cup of cherry or grape tomatoes

3 table spoons or cut red onions

1 cup of fresh spinach

2 table spoons of dried cranberries

2 table spoons of toasted walnuts

4 table spoons of goat cheese ( you can use feta if you don’t like goat cheese )

Salad dressing:

4 table spoons of olive oil

3 table spoons of balsamic vinegar

2 table spoons of Agave syrup

1 table spoon of spicy mustard

1 garlic clove ( pressed)

Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

Bake your beats approximately at 350 for 1 hour.

Cook your pasta and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process.

Cut your veggies around the same size.

Prep your dressing , whisking together all the dressing ingredients.

Add your spinach, pasta and all your other veggies in a bowl mix with dressing. Top your salad with cheese, nuts and cranberries .
