Sardine Pasta Salad February 23, 2012

Jamie says: I made a Sardine Pasta Salad for a quick, healthy, delicious dinner. It would also make a great lunch, too!

Sardine Pasta Salad

I love sardines. I wouldn’t want to eat them all the time, but every so often, I crave ’em.

Sardines, sardines, sardines... you've got to try them

Pasta + salad = pasta salad.

It's pasta and a salad- a true pasta salad!

Sardine Pasta Salad


  • 3/4 cup rotini (Publix)
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1/4 cucumber
  • 1/4 tomato
  • 1 thin slice yellow onion
  • 1 piece celery
  • 12 olives
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • dash fine sea salt
  • dash freshly ground pepper
  • 3.75 oz can sardines in olive oil (Brunswick; from Publix)


  1. Bring water to a boil in a medium pot. Add pasta. Boil for about 12 minutes. Drain.
  2. Place spinach on a plate. Chop cucumber, tomato, onion, and celery, and add to spinach along with olives.
  3. Add cooked pasta to salad. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil on pasta. Sprinkle oregano, sea salt, and pepper on top. Top with sardines. Enjoy!

  • Nutrition note: Love pasta but find yourself eating too much of it. Make a pasta salad with lots of veggies. You’ll satisfy your pasta craving, increase your nutrient intake, and cut back on some carbs and calories.

    Wow, this actually looks good. I have never had a sardine in my life outside of someone hiding it in a recipe. This is all out in the open, fishy looking. I wonder if I would like it. It looks delicious though. I’m a vegetable fanatic.
