Red, Gold and Green Asparagus- Tomato- Pasta Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Lalaloula

This recipe is taken from a German monthly cooking magazine called "Für jeden Tag" (everyday cooking). It is a very fresh, beautiful to look at and yummy pasta salad, that is great for all occasions. It is simple to prepare and sure to impress guests. I used red radishes in place of some of the tomatoes, but you can add your favourite veggie or use only tomato. I hope youll enjoy it as much as we did! :)

This was easy to prepare. It was great to find a pasta salad without mayo, yogurt or sour cream. I made 1/2 of this recipe with feta cheese and 1/2 without as I can't have cheese. Such a refreshing salad.
