Gluten Free Pasta Salad

Saturdays are my days to be different and creative (it is also my day for laundry and house cleaning, but I won’t be talking about that!!).  With the cares of business gone for the day, it gives me time to focus on other things — like new recipes to create!

As most of you already know, I am the ‘Salad Queen’.  For me, salads mix up the best of all worlds:  raw veggies.  My new Gluten Free Pasta Salad is full of some of my favorite veggies!

Once again, there are lots of variations available for this recipe.  For example, my husband added jalapenos and cheese (he is not vegan!) to his portion.

Some other veggies you could use in this recipe could be:

  • Bell pepper
  • Green onions
  • Olives
  • Caulflower
  • Raisins

What other ingredients would you try in this salad?
