Tuna Pasta Salad with Apples & Grapes

Tuna Pasta Salad with apples and grapes

I came out of my comfort zone today with this  salad.  Adding fruit to fish or chicken is just not my style, but this salad is really good .  It comes together in the ten minutes it takes to cook the pasta.  If you really don’t care for the taste of canned tuna the apples and grapes turn it into a not so tuna salad.

Blue Cheese Dressing


After doing as little shopping one of my favorite places to have lunch is Prime at Lenox Square.  I just love their Cobb Salad with blue cheese dressing.  I am happy to say that I have found the recipe so now all of us can enjoy it at home.  It packs a lot of flavor and you’ll find you only need a small amount so guess what – a reduction in the amount of calories.  I can go for that!  I just put together a chopped salad  including chopped romaine, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, and hearts of palm.  I placed all the vegetables in a container with a top and added about a heaping teaspoon of dressing.  I put the top on it and gave it a good shake.  Oh my Gosh!  So help yourself to the greatest salad dressing and it is just a shame that it is so easy to make.

Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake
