This is a wonderful pasta salad that is not only vegan but anyone would love. Very healthy and a wonderful mixture of flavors that compliment each other.
You can even take it a step further by experimenting with other vegis added to the mix! I like to add a little shaved carrot, avacado and bits of romaine to the mix as well as using balsamic vinegar in place of red wine vinegar at times.
