Italian Pasta Salad
 
2 lb.  cooked and cooled pasta
1   jar drained artichoke hearts
1 can  green olives
1   jar drained giardiena salad (in the pickle aisle and spelled correctly on the
  jar
4   shredded carrots
4   chopped celeries
  one bottle Newmans Own Italian Dressing
1/2 cup  breadcrumbs
 
Mix all of the above together 
 
 
We're finally seeing the signs of summer: long days, warm breezes, red sunsets 
and of course, fresh food. British Columbia, Canada, is bountiful with 
locally-grown, in season produce choices. Now is the time to experiment with 
colourful, creative menu ideas. The more colour, the more nutrients. So whether 
life is a picnic, a backyard barbecue, or lunch in the park, add some spark to 
old-time favourites . . . 
 
Summer Specialties 
 
Toss potato and pasta salads with red, green or yellow peppers. Throw in some 
cherry tomatoes, zucchini or yellow squash for a rainbow of colour. 
 
Brighten up a chicken or turkey salad by adding big chunks of peaches or 
apricots; enjoy a burst of flavour in every bite. 
 
Greens go great with papaya or mango strips; top with an herb vinaigrette or 
fruit flavoured yogurt dressing. 
 
Tuck favourite sandwich fillings into Italian focaccia bread; layer with strips 
of cheese and tomato slices, sprinkle with fresh herbs and drizzle with balsamic 
vinegar and olive oil. 
 
Fuelling with Fluids 
 
Don't forget the fluids. Children especially are prone to fluid loss when 
playing in the sun. While ice water is your best bet, the following ideas may 
beat the heat and add some fun. 
 
In a blender, puree chunks of peaches, pears or nectarines, along with a 
tablespoon of lemon juice. Pour into ice cube containers and freeze until firm. 
Serve as ice cubes in chilled water or as a popsicle treat. 
 
Spice up regular lemonade by adding cranberry or raspberry juice. Dilute sweet 
drinks well with water as sweet drinks may increase thirst. 
 
Mix up a fruit spritzer by adding soda water to 100% fruit juices. Try freezing 
it until just slushy and eat with a spoon.
