Fresh Tomato and Olive Pasta Salad…at least, in my opinion — 16 Comments

  1. For me, salads are any coldish (not piping hot) first dish kind of things with a little sauce on them, vinegar or no. This one looks good.

  2. Meredith, I made a fruit salad for my fist neighborhood picnic…with Sauterne… It was meant for dessert but they didn’t quite know what to do with it…LOL
    Thanks, Christine…I will/do.

  3. I’m laughing! I think the cook has the right to name her/his dishes anything she/he wants to call them! Salad, not salad — it’s all up to you. And this one looks delicious.

  4. Funny post! 🙂
    This salad looks great. To me, a salad is anything that is tossed around in a bowl or plate. It can be hot or cold.

  5. I love France. Your blog reminds me of my travels there. I stayed with family friends in Martigues and in the morning their neighbors would give us freshly laid eggs from her hen. It was amazing. Thanks for the jogging the memory.

  6. LOL, I love your writing styly almost as much as the recipes. Thanks for sharing with Presto Pasta Nights.
    As for me…I’m with you although I have had a few hot salads in my day – sometimes with lettuce, sometimes without. What would your husband say about that?

  7. Lydia, I agree. If I want to call it….well, I agree!
    Thanks, Chris and Nora… Life gives me lots to work with!
    Thanks for stopping by, Nirmala… glad to being back good memories!
    You’re right, Ruth, Hot Spinach and Bacon Salad, for one… He considers that salad – green leaves… (Glad you enjoy it;-) )

  8. Marye, thanks – for both compliments…, and for stopping by!
    Sandi, thank you… and for confirming it’s SALAD status..LOL

  9. Mimi, there are some things that we’ll always ‘agree to disagree’ on. Besides, I think guys don’t like the idea of just eating ‘salad’… so if they call it something else it’s okay…

  10. That looks delicious.
    Actually, you wouldn’t be wrong in Russia. I’m from there originally, and we have all sorts of salad that don’t involve any lettuce, and plenty of meat, grains and vegetables.
