I haven’t made pasta salad in the longest time! I don’t know why either, when its so easy! This was my version of put whatever veggies I have left in the pasta salad!
salt and pepper
Few slices deli salami, chopped
Paul Newman’s Light Balsamic Vinagrette
Cook the pasta with the carrots, and rinse under cold water. Transfer to a bowl. I added the celery raw, I soaked the red onions in water so they didn’t overpower the whole thing. I cooked the edamame in the microwave for 2 minutes, shelled them, and rinsed them under cold water too, and added all that to the bowl. Chop up the salami and add that next. Pour enough dressing to coat everything pretty well. That’s it!
There are so many variations to this. You can use any kind of pasta, sometimes I’ll add ham cubes and peas and carrots, or green beans and feta cheese, whatever combo you like!
Refrigerate until ready to serve
