Pasta Salad with Orange Champagne dressing

Summer is upon us and with temperatures hovering at 93F today, feeling lethargic is not rare. I wanted to make dinner that was fresh and lively and settled on this pasta salad. It was a simple and super fun recipe and not even remotely intimidating.


 Ingredients:

Whole wheat farfalle pasta
Onion
Tomato
Spinach
Broccoli
Craisins
Walnut pieces
Orange champagne vinegar
Salt and Pepper to taste.


Method : 

I didn't list the quantities of ingredients. Just add more of what you like and eliminate what you don't like.
Cook the pasta in boiling water. Drain and run in cold water.
Chop the vegetables fine and toss them with the pasta and vinegar.
Add salt pepper and pepper to taste. Serve cold!

The orange champagne vinegar gives such a fruity fresh taste. I add onion since its so good for health and I love its taste but be careful not to put in too much. You can use cherry tomatoes. They would look a lot better, I am sure. There are infinite ways to change this up to suit your needs, so have fun with it.

Like I said, this is the simplest recipe. I know a lot of you want to cook and are looking for something ridiculously simple and an alternative to frozen food. This is the recipe you are looking for. Doesn't involve doing anymore than boiling water! Hope you enjoy it!
