Tossed with a fresh lemon-dill vinaigrette, this pasta salad exudes the light, refreshing flavors of the season.
1 pound Lagana Foods campanelle pasta
1 package Loki Fish Company smoked salmon, flaked into bite-size pieces
4 cups mixed summer greens, such as Mizuna and baby lettuces
Lemon-dill vinaigrette (see recipe)
2 tablespoons freshly-chopped parsley
2 teaspoons freshly-chopped mint
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
1. Over medium-high heat, bring a large pot of generously salted water to a boil. Drop in pasta and cook until al dente, about 7 minutes. Drain and drizzle with a tablespoon of olive to avoid noodles sticking together. Let cool to room temperature, tossing occasionally.
2. Put pasta into a large mixing bowl, tossing with lemon-dill vinaigrette to coat, reserving about 2 tablespoons. Then add smoked salmon and parsley and gently toss.
3. On a large serving platter, arrange greens, then top with pasta salad and drizzle with remaining vinaigrette. Garnish with fresh mint.
