Farfalle & herb salad with clementines
It’s that time of year where I keep smelling my fingertips during the day because they smell so much like the delicious fruit I’ve peeled and enjoyed. So, if you are like me and you buy them by the caseload and are always happy to add them to any recipe, here’s a sunny pasta salad recipe.
Cress is a very delicate food, so I suggest you only mix it into the salad before serving.
