Summertime is a season for gathering and with my father in law’s birthday party coming up quickly, I’ve been pulling out some of my favorite summer salad recipes to see which ones are his party favorites. This Greek Pasta Salad recipe is one of the many that made the cut and I’m excited to share the recipe with you today. Though I have partnered with Reese for this post, as always, all opinions are my own.
This Greek pasta salad recipe is really special because it is inspired by a Greek salad that my mom always made. Of course I’ve adapted it quite a bit by adding pasta noodles, but I’ve also added in some Reese Hearts of Palm and Artichoke Hearts which really make it unique! Reese Hearts of Palm are a low cholesterol food but also rich in potassium and Vitamin C. They are even Non-GMO Project Verified, which is a total plus in those of us looking for quality food, that is convenient to use.
Reese Hearts of Palm are great for use in salads, served as a main dish and even deep fried. Being from Wisconsin, I naturally love anything deep fried! There are 6 varieties to choose from, though I chose the Sliced Hearts of Palm for this recipe and they were perfect since I didn’t have to do any extra cutting! Reese Artichoke Hearts are a great addition too! They’re also a staple ingredient in this Super Cheesy Spinach & Artichoke Dip Recipe that you’ll surely love!
Family means everything and I always like to put a little <3 into the meals that I serve them. Reese Hearts of Palm helped me put more than a little “heart” into this tasty dish that my family and friends are sure to enjoy at my father in law’s birthday bash. It’s simple, delicious and best of all shelf stable so that’s one last ingredient off my last minute shopping list!
