Bison Pasta Salad


Bison Pasta Salad


Pasta Salad Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ lbs bison sirloin
  • 1 ½ lbs penne pasta (dry weight)
  • 2 zucchini, diced
  • 1 sweet red pepper, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 6 green onions, chopped
  • 4 stalks celery, diced
  • ⅓ cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, diced finely
  • 1 large bunch broccoli
  • 1 small cauliflower
  • ⅓ cup pitted and split black olives (optional)
  • 3 oz feta cheese, crumbled (optional)


Dressing Ingredients:

  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • ⅓ cup sunflower oil
  • 3 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • ½ tsp Mrs. Dash seasoning blend or similar salt to taste


Add a little something extra to your pasta salad with the tender, juicy flavor of bison.

  1. Barbecue bison to desired doneness. Cool in the refrigerator. Once cool, cut steak into very thin slices. Set aside.
  2. Boil pasta in at least 6 quarts of water until barely tender. Drain, rinse under cold water from the faucet. Set aside after completely cooled. Toss occasionally until totally drained.
  3. Cut the broccoli and cauliflower into bite size florets.
  4. Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil. Add the broccoli and cauliflower florets, cover and blanch for 2 minutes. Drain immediately. Cool in another pot of very cold water. Drain again and, excluding dressing ingredients, combine with all other ingredients.
  5. Add dressing ingredients to a shaker bottle. Shake for about a minute before pouring over salad. Toss and serve.
