This Almond,Shrimp and Feta Pasta Salad is a light but filling pasta salad that’s perfect for a main dish or side dish!
My husband has never been a big lover of Pasta Salad but he’s actually a huge fan of this one! I think it’s because this one is a fantastic olive oil and balsamic vinegar based dish!
And the shrimp? Well I would have never thought to put that into pasta salad but when I was down in Wilmington the other weekend, a friend of Toni’s dropped off some pasta salad with baby shrimp in it and I thought that was the best idea ever! I gave it a try and added tiny shrimp to this pasta salad and fell in love!
I love pasta salads in the summer because it’s normally so hot that I’m always craving cold food!
Speaking of summer and food…..
This year I read somewhere that the schools in our area were going to make all school lunches FREE for every child! That is amazing news and I was so excited to hear it!
However, that doesn’t help children once the school year is over. I imagine that there are quite a few children in our very own city that don’t know where their next meal will be coming from this summer. It breaks my heart!
Here is how this Challange Works:
Dreamfields is going to be hosting “basket cooking challanges” throughout the summer!
We were given a list of ingredients in a “Market Basket” (plus up to 2 of our choice) to create an outstanding pasta dish!
Then, our fans must vote! Vote for the recipe that you like the best (psst vote for this one!! haha)!
You can cast one vote per day for the recipe of your choice.
While there are many of these challenges going on this summer, the Gourmet Basket Challenge is the one I’m participating in and the voting will last one week!
So if I win, that means that God’s Storehouse in Danville, VA will receive a $1,000 donation!
A $200 donation will also be made to the local food bank of each runner-up.
PLUS – one voter from each Market Basket Challenge will be chosen at random to win a family pack of Dreamfields pasta and a $1,000 donation to the food bank of their choice.
So the more you vote, the more chances you have to win.
I am so excited for this and I WOULD LOVE to see that donation go to God’s Storehouse in Danville, VA.
The voting page will be live from 12:01 a.m. EDT Thursday, July 2 through 11:59 p.m. EDT Wednesday, July 8.
