The Spicy Olive’s Mandarin Pasta Salad

This is the perfect pasta salad for pot luck dinners and summer parties! This one is also a salad that kids love! Add grilled chicken to make this main dish instead of a side.

The Mandarin Pasta salad has an Asian flare because it is dressed with our Honey Ginger balsamic but to play up the Mandarin tangerine flavor, I used The Spicy Olive’s Mandarin olive oil. It is packed with delicious citrus flavor and is the perfect compliment. If our Mandarin olive oil is not available (it is a seasonal olive oil) our Blood Orange olive oil is a great substitute!

The Spicy Olive’s Summer Corn Salad

This salad is a delicious summer side dish made with fresh corn! For south of the border flavor and a little heat, try it with our Persian Lime olive oil and Serrano Honey balsamic vinegar instead of the varieties in the recipe. Add cilantro if using this combo instead of the dill and mint in this recipe.  Another delicious combination for this salad would be The Spicy Olive’s Basil olive oil and our Lemongrass Mint balsamic. That combo will play up the fresh herbs in the salad!

The healthiest way to prepare vegetables is to saute or roast them in olive oil. This traps in the nutrients that are in the vegetables as well as the health benefits from the olive oil, vitamins A & E, monounsaturated fats and anti inflammatory agents.
