My Pasta Salad

READY IN: 24hrs 30mins
Recipe by Candy C

Lots of fresh vegetables make this an easy, healthy, and delightful side dish. I often add cooked chicken or ham for a cool summer meal. You can vary the vegetables you use - it will make it colorful and just to your taste! Please make one day before serving to allow flavors to blend.

A good way of serving cauliflower & broccoli. I did steam them a little before adding them to the salad. The artichoke hearts were a subtle flavour and people enjoyed the dish. Economical and wholesome.
