Okay. I looked at this salad when it was first posted and my first thought was, “EWWWW!!” How could Kayte think this was good? Feta cheese!! Mustard!! Yuck!! Sorry, Kayte!! So I put off making it and put off making it, but I knew I HAD to make it eventually. After all, Kayte is one of my best blogger/twitter buddies. So I bit the bullet and put the salad together.

Wow!! Have I changed my tune. “Thanks, Kayte, this was good!!!” I have to admit I am still not a big fan of Feta cheese or mustard, but crumbled small the Feta cheese merely adds flavor. I used a garlic/herb Feta for extra flavor. I didn’t have any Dijon mustard, but I did have some Honing Mosterd that another great blogger/twitter buddy, Marthe, sent me from The Netherlands. It doesn’t as strong a mustard flavor as DiJon so it was perfect for the dressing for this salad which also called for Red Wine Vinegar, Olive Oil, and minced garlic. Just right!!

The salad itself is a simple mix of pasta, Feta, Chopped (or chiffonade) baby spinach, red onion, and walnuts. I used a tricolor pasta for color. The walnuts added a surprise little crunch in each bite.

And I have to say I really enjoyed this pasta salad and will definitely fix it often. Thanks, Kayte, again, for adding a new taste to my food horizons.

I wonder how the other CEinMB members liked it. Guess I (and you) will just have to visit and see.
