    Eat Your Vegetables!'s Note:

    This is a basic pasta salad recipe, which is easy to tweak or add extra veggies to, depending what you have on hand. I like to make this on Sundays and keep it in the fridge for quick healthy lunches/dinners during hectic work weeks. It really doesn't take much time to make your own dressing for pasta salads and the results are much fresher-tasting and well worth the effort.
