Zesty Pasta Salad

Debbie W


I love this pasta salad in the summer. It's a great way to utilize the fresh tomatoes and cucumbers that are availble.This salad is cool and refreshing and has the perfect balance of crunch and spice. This is great for potlucks or even for a picnic.When I am making it for a group I double the recipe. can vary this by adding black olives, celery, red onion, artichoke hearts. Whatever you may like.
