    dicentra's Note:

    This is from my 365 Pasta Recipes cookbook, but I changed the original recipe quite a bit. Food should be attractive and this dish is really pretty and colorful. And easy to make! Cut the veggies really tiny. This is a great dish for work lunches because it is good hot or cold.

      Everybody that I have made this for like this. I've made this a couple of times already with different types of pasta. One time I added in some olives and shredded chicken for protein,another time tomatoes. I always use less oil than called for, maybe 1/8 of a cup.

      This was really delicious. I too used less olive oil maybe an 1/8th of a cup and just the juice and zest of one lemon -didnt bother measuring. I also grated the carrot as my husband will pick them out if I don't. Nice salad to go along with our burgers tonight.

      A wonderfully refreshing salad. What I liked the best was how mellow the tastes were. I reduced the oil to 1/4 cup and served it cold. I will definitely use this recipe again and might try adding different veggies to see how it tastes. Thank you for sharing!
