Anne's Colourful Pasta Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Lalaloula

As the title indicates, I got this recipe from a good friend of mine, Anne. It is very quick and easy to make and really tasty, too. It's great for potlucks or brunch buffets (the recipe can be multiplied easily). I know there are many pasta salads on zaar already, but I think this one is just a little different. I hope you enjoy! Note: 250 g = 9oz; 200 g = 7oz

I chose this recipe for the dressing because I'm always looking for alternatives to mayo for pasta salad. I made it with tricolored rotini, peas and tomatoes, plus diced red onion and green pepper--no apples, carrots or gherkins. The dressing is stupendous. I love the combination of herbs and the lemon juice plus mustard lend it a nice bite. Will definitely make again.
