This is a fresh twist on the usual pasta salad. It uses crisp summer veggies, such as green onions, carrots adn cherry tomatoes and uses light cream cheese for the dressing. I came up with this recipes myself, so ingredient amounts are estimates. Adjust them to your own liking and feel free to swap veggies according to what you have on hand. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did! :)

A crystal delight to the palette! We used all the vegetables suggested and added some cucumber, and added a olive or two, and this magnificent salad was ready. I served this at room temperature, and we couldn't get enough. Loved the vegetables mixed so nicely with the dressing. Perfect combo!

We loved this healthy recipe! I added cucumber and black olives and grated the carrots to keep the texture from being too crunchy. The cream cheese coating is delicious so I made more to boost its flavour on the pasta. The paprika was great with it so I added more of that too! I'll be making this frequently for take-to-work lunches!

I found it a bit dry for my palate but a bit of homemade mayo cured that part. Overall it was a great summer basic. I grated my veggies too rather than chunk them, using carrots, zucchini, along with the minced green onion and cherry tomatoes. I also added a bunch of chopped cilantro.
