What's for Lunch?

Yesterday for lunch, we had pasta caprese, greek salad, and fresh strawberries and banana's (my favorite fruit combo!).  The greek salad is simple, and something I like to eat several times a week for lunch.  It's very yummy!  It's just romaine lettuce, tomatoes, onion, cucumber, artichoke hearts, black olives, pepperoncini's, oregano, feta cheese, and a delicious homemade dressing.

What to make the dressing:
1/8 cup lime juice
1/8 cup evo
1 tbsp honey

Mix together, and pour some over the salad.

Now, here is how to make the pasta caprese.


3/4 cup of evo (or less if you want, because that's a lot!)
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 contained of cherry tomatoes, chopped
1 bag of thinnly shredded mozzarella cheese
1 box of penne pasta

Cook pasta.  Meanwhile, combine oil, vinegar, garlic, basil, salt, and pepper in a bowl.  Add tomatoes and mozzarella, toss until well coated, and let marinate for 20-25 minutes.  Add mixture to cooked pasta, toss, and serve warm.
