Pasta

You can use any kind of pasta to make this pasta salad. However it is important to note that not all pasta is for cold salads. In my opinion, elbow macaroni, fusilli, penne, rotini or farfalle also known as bowtie works best.

The Veggies

You can use pretty much any vegetable of your choice in this recipe. This version is simple because I made it with the vegetables I had in my fridge. The cucumbers add a nice level of crispness that the dressing can really cling to. Juicy, cherry tomatoes are a nice addition as well. I used heirloom cherry tomatoes in this salad.
