This recipe is an easy and delicious way to dress up pre-made gnocchi. It is a light and flavourful and the zucchini ribbons make for a beautiful presentation. It also works really well with a flat pasta, like linguine. (Small shells would probably work too.) It is modified from a recipe from "EatingWell Magazine".
I was craving a non-mayo-based pasta salad with tons of veggies, so I kinda made this one up by combining a few other recipes I found. I've been on a big Israeli couscous kick lately, but this could probably be made with bowties or pretty much any pasta. Also, it would be great with any combination of veggies! Cook time doesn't include time to cook couscous.
I have been making these for years, and I always make lots to freeze! --- The potatoes must be baked firstly, cooled completely then frozen, do not omit the eggs and warm the whipping cream with butter on top of the stove firstly, or the potato filling will not freeze properly and become soggy and soft when reheated --- the amounts listed are for 7 jumbo russet potatoes, if you are making to freeze then you may easily double or triple the amounts, keeping the green onion amount as stated in recipe or you may increase slightly --- the potatoes may be used right away or frozen, directions include method for both --- purchase the jumbo russet potatoes for this.
This salad has a delightful depth of flavor with roasted cherry tomatoes, fresh herbs and whole grains. This is a filling salad that could be a vegetarian meal, or could be served alongside a grilled skewer of shrimp or chicken for a light summertime meal.
I have absolutely hardly anything in the fridge, so the following has not been tried, and is only a thought at the moment, which I am saving on here for preparation later.
I did make this, I used yogurt in place of the sour cream.
I think it would also be nice with mayo, a bit of lemon juice and curry powder.
This spicy salad with little jewels of dried apricot in the mix would be welcome at lunch or a simple weekday dinner. You can prepare the salad and dressing ahead of time. The dressing is inspired by the flavors of North Africa and is good drizzled on mixed green salads as well as grain salads.

This recipe is easy and healthy, a good side dish or a main course for lunch. Vegetarian. Inspired by an edamame salad in the salad bar at my grocery store. It looked but didn't taste good, so I decided to make one that did.
