  • I like pizza pasta salad. You just put cooked rotini pasta rinsed and cooled in a bowl. Then you add anything you would like that would also be topped on a pizza. I put in tomatoes, black olives, mushrooms, onions, green peppers. You also add in pepperoni and mozzarella cheese. Once you add all the ingredients pour Italian dressing on top of it.

    1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
    Freshly ground pepper to taste
    1.5 cups home cooked, or 1 15-ounce or 19-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed
    1 cup diced peeled cucumber (I use zucchini or broccoli)
    1 cup diced celery or fennel (I use jicama)
    1 cu p grated ca rrots
    10 cups small spinach leaves or mesclun salad greens (about 8 ounces)
    To prepare dressing: Whisk yogurt, lemon juice, oil, cumin, ginger and garlic in a small bowl until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. To prepare salad: Combine chickpeas, cucumber, celery (or fennel) and carrots in a medium bowl. Add half the dressing and toss to coat.

  • Toss spinach (or mesclun) in a large bowl with the remaining dressing. Divide the greens among 6 plates and top with the vegetables. Serve immediately. MAKES 6 SERVINGS NOTE: When I feel ambitious, I make croutons from pita; for a crowd, top with vegetables in the serving bowl
