Active Time:

Salmon Pesto Pasta Salad


2 teaspoons lemon juice

2 tablespoons basil pesto

1/4 cup salad dressing-type mayonnaise

1/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese

8 ounces fusilli pasta

1 pound fresh salmon fillets

cooking spray

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

plastic wrap

4 ounces field greens salad blend (romaine, curly endive, frisée, radicchio, carrots)


1. Fill large saucepan half full of water. Cover and bring to a boil on high for pasta. Combine in large bowl: lemon juice, pesto, salad dressing, and ricotta cheese; set aside.

2. Stir pasta into boiling water. Cook 7-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until tender.

3. Place salmon in microwave-safe dish. Coat salmon with cooking spray; sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Cover dish tightly with plastic wrap (turn one corner back to vent); microwave on HIGH 4-5 minutes or until fish is opaque and separates easily with a fork. (Thicker parts may take longer; remove thin parts to avoid over-cooking.)

4. Drain pasta; rinse with cold water. Chill quickly by plunging pasta into ice water; drain well and stir into pesto mixture. Break salmon apart while adding to mixture (discard skin/dark flesh); mix to blend. Divide salad greens on serving plates; top with salmon mixture and serve.
