(NC) - A fresh and zesty salad full of ripe, juicy Ontario tomatoes, crisp, seedless cucumbers and the sunny tastes of Spain.
In a large amount of boiling water, cook pasta until al dente (tender, but firm); drain well and cool. In a large bowl, combine cooled pasta, Greenhouse tomatoes, Greenhouse cucumber, black olives (if using), green onions, green pepper, and parsley.
Whisk together oil, vinegar, garlic, and seasonings. Pour over tomato mixture and stir gently. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or longer. Serve on leaf lettuce.
Makes 8 servings, about 10 cups (2.5 L) salad.
Gazpacho Soup Variation:
Omit pasta and black olives in recipe above and use only one-half of the dressing. To half the dressing, add 1 cup (250 mL) tomato juice or vegetable cocktail, chopped Gpeenhouse tomatoes and cucumber, chopped green onions, green pepper, and parsley.
Serving Size: Makes about 4 cups (1L) of soup.
