Summer Addiction Pasta Salad

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by evelynathens

I make up this salad just about every weekend. Not only is it fresh-tasting and nutritious, but it gets even better with each passing day (in the fridge). I guess I could call this our 'Summer Addiction'.

this made a nice lunch for us today, and i have plenty left for lunch tomorrow. i used 1 can of black beans , 1 can of corn, and i added some fresh chopped chives. this is a nice basic dish and i could see adding zucchini, tomatoes, mushrooms or any other fresh veggies you have in your fridge
