Smoked Salmon Pasta Salad

This recipe was adapted from Chris Carmichael's Fitness Cookbook:  Delicious Recipes for Increased Fitness, Enhanced Health, and Weight Loss, which has many recipes that are naturally gluten and dairy free, or can be easily modified.  This is one of my go to recipes for potlucks.

For the pasta, I prefer Tinkyada rice pasta or Mrs. Leepers corn pasta, both of which taste best freshly made.   
Alaska Smokehouse carries gluten free smoked salmon and is available in some grocery stores.  Although lemon juice tastes best, if you can't tolerate lemon, lime juice is a decent substitute.  Add an extra tablespoon or two of lime juice and olive oil to the measurements below, according to your taste preference.


12 oz spiral or penne gluten free pasta
16 ounces Alaska Smokehouse smoked salmon, separated from skin and chopped
2 1/2 cups fresh spinach leaves, chopped
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

salt and pepper to taste


Cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain and rinse with cold water. Toss with remaining ingredients.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Serves 4.  Source:
