Tomato Herb Pasta Salad

In May I posted a recipe called Grilled Chicken Salad with Herbed Tomato Vinaigrette which was absolutely fabulous. However, I’m not one to drown my salads, I just like to add a bit of flavor with my dressings, so I have plenty of leftover vinaigrette. So, I used it to make this wonderful pasta salad.

Since we were going up to our camper that weekend, I decided to take a box of pasta, the vinaigrette and some chopped ingredients with me. Once we got there I cooked the pasta and mixed it all together. Delicious!

Tomato Herb Pasta Salad
(measurements are not included because I just use a handful of this and that)
chopped green onion
diced radishes
chopped broccoli florets
diced cheese (some sort of soft white)
vinaigrette (recipe here)
1/2 – 3/4 lm cooked and drained mini Farfelle pasta
fresh ground pepper and salt to taste
Combine everything in a large bowl and mix well. Allow to chill in the refrigerator for several hours before serving, stirring twice while chilling to distribute flavors.

    I totally agree! I don't like dressing that overpowers everything else, especially mayo based salads. I only like a little mayo. This looks great!

    I'm the opposite. I like to drown mine in dressing.

    Your pasta salad looks terrific! My children and I love 'em.

    Horray! A new idea for pasta salad! And I love that you take real food camping…we love to camp, and I insist on having food that's not just junk (although to appease my children we do have some junk :) ) Thanks!

    Seems like everyone has a pasta salad out, but this one sounds good to me! (I'm not usually a big pasta salad person) Might have to change up my lunch routine a bit!
