Spinach & Sundried Tomato Pasta Salad Salad

Uh, Jaime … you’re title is messed up, you wrote salad twice …

Yup that’s right, I did, and it’s not a mistake either. It’s a pasta salad salad. A pasta salad with a heaping helping of greens. Or a salad with some pasta in it, whichever you prefer. I played with the idea of this last week as a way to get in some extra protein and whole grains into my salad without adding too many points. It was love at first bite. This is a slightly Italian version with tomatoes and basil. It’s a great light lunch.


  • 28 grams Whole Wheat Pasta
  • 2 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 tsp Olive Oil, I use the oil the tomatoes are packed in
  • 12 grams Sundried Tomatoes, chopped
  • 50 grams Baby Spinach
  • 75 grams Salad Greens
  • 50 grams Red Pepper, chopped
  • 55 grams, about 8, Grape Tomatoes, halved
  • 30 grams, about 8, Black Olives, halved
  • 2 to 3 Basil Leaves, chopped
  • Kosher Salt
  • Black Pepper


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. While the pasta cooks, whisk vinegar and oil together.
  3. Toss all ingredients together and season with salt and pepper to taste.
