Garden Pasta Salad with Lemon-Oregano Dressing #InspiredbyNature #Sponsored

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of  Charles Viancin.* All opinions are my own.

Here we are on day three of our Summer Equinox Progressive Picnic. Read more about the event and enter the giveaway:  here or below. Today I am sharing two recipes for a salad course - one sweet and one savory. This is the savory course and I found inspiration at one of our weekly farmers' markets.


The boys picked golden beets, dandelion leaves, carrots, and summer squash; I was inspired by some organic lemons for an easy summer dressing.

You can read my thoughts about the air-tight lids by Charles Viancin in my Summer Fruits with a Black Currant-Rosemary Drizzle post. They are such a great alternative to using disposable plastic wrap to get your salad from the kitchen to the potluck table.

Garden Pasta Salad with Lemon-Oregano Dressing

Pasta Salad
  • 1 pound gluten-free pasta (I used penne), cooked and drained
  • 1 C cooked golden beets, peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 C thinly sliced carrots (I used purple carrots)
  • 1/2 C thinly sliced summer squash
  • 1/4 C thinly sliced dandelion leaves

Lemon-Oregano Dressing
  • 1/4 C olive oil
  • 1 lemon, zested and juice
  • 1 t oregano
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/4 t freshly ground pepper

Place all of the pasta ingredients in a large mixing bowl. In a lidded jar, place all of the dressing ingredients. Shake to emulsify. Pour the dressing over the pasta and toss to coat well. Serve chilled.
