Heinz Salad Cream with Onion and Chives update

Heinz Salad Cream with Onion & Chives update 


I held a Pampered Chef party at my house for my friends, the host cooked some dishes using recipes from the Pampered Chef programme - while I quickly whipped up an Italian Pasta Salad using Heinz Salad Cream with Onion & Chives.


It was gorgeous!!  The salad cream lightly coated the pasta and gave a light onion bite of flavour.  Teamed with the ingredients my guests were really impressed - plus it looked colourful and tempting to eat.


Unfortunately I had to take some photos with my phone as my husband was away for the weekend and had taken the camera with him - and I can't find the lead to transfer the photos to my blog :(

Serves:
4 or Serves 10 as a side salad

Tip:
Can serve this salad cold, just add
more Heinz salad cream with
onion & chives to taste.

roughly chopped
• 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
• 4 tbsp Heinz Salad Cream with Onion & Chives (although I didn't measure, I just gave it a good squeeze!).

Meanwhile in a large bowl mix together the mozzarella,
tomatoes, rocket, basil, olives and red onion with

The recipe was quick and simple to make ... and everyone loved it !!  My mother-in-law has asked for the recipe and even my daughter ate everything except the olives.


I shall definitely be using Heinz Salad Cream with Onion & Chives this summer, great for perking up a salad or oozing over bbq food.
