  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked pasta
  • 1/2 head of cauliflower cut up and steamed
  • 1 cup broccoli florets also steamed
  • 2 tomatoes diced
  • 1/2 cup cucumber diced
  • handful Olives, sliced
  • 1/4 cup scallions chopped
Salad Dressing
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1/8 tsp crushed red pepper
  • Salt and pepper
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Add all of the ingredients for the salad dressing in a bowl and whisk until emulsified. (It also works great to add them to a Mason jar and shake them up!)
  2. Cook pasta, al dente. In the meantime, prepare the vegetables. In a large bowl combine all the ingredients. Yes, even the dressing and vinegar. Toss and let it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.
  3. Check for seasoning - I always add some kosher salt. This pasta salad goes well with just about any meat.
  4. Add the additional ingredients you love - peppers, red onion, or feta cheese!
