Lovely appearing and tasty salad

Top Review by Acerast

This is by no means your average pasta salad; it has very vivid flavors and colors. The ingredients work well together. The fruitiness of the balsamic vinegar brings out the pungency of the basil. The mixture of vegetables is wonderful too. I really liked the crunch of raw zucchini. Thanks for a great recipe Bergy!
