    Annacia's Note:

    The fat content in this scallops, spinach, and pea pasta salad is minimal because the white wine vinegar and orange dressing is made without any oil. Cook time is chill time.

      This was a great, salad which we had as a light dinner this week. The red peppers added a bit of zing against the other more gentle taste sensations in this recipe. And the orange dressing was smiply delightful and added such a wonderful citrussy zing to the spinach. My only comment would be that the scallops and pasta were too bland and needed something (perhaps a blend of garlic, salt, pepper and basil maybe ?? ). But I love scallops and pasta, so I'll definitely make this salad again! Thanks Annacia.
