Several times I have heard the critique about keeping my dessert and food separate.
Hah, yes, I like to mix fruit with the food, but only when I think they go well together.
Like peaches or bananas, and chicken, fresh fruit salad and salmon, and my red, hot pasta salad.
And this mix is not such a reach of all, we all know that strawberries and balsamic vinaigrette go well together, and so do chili and strawberries, and chili and turkey... They all have a connection, and together really lovely combination.
It comes together super fast, as well, so you don't have to spend the whole day in the kitchen, now that the weather is finally warming up.
You will need
- Turkey marinated in chili + oil
- Red bell pepper
- Spring onion
- Red onion
- Balsamic vinaigrette
I set the pasta water on, and sautéd the turkey. It was cut in a little, thin stripes, so on a hot pan, it will get done in no time at all. Make sure to taste, add salt and pepper as needed.
Then I cut my bell peppers, onion, spring onion, and strawberries.
When the pasta was cooked, everything else was ready. I cooled off the pasta with a cold water, shook it dry, and then mixed everything else with it, adding the strawberries last, so I wouldn't break the consistency of them too much.
Then just serve it as it is, or in a pita bread, or inside of a wrap
I hope you all enjoy it, and enjoy the signs of spring as well! Till next time
