Easy Pasta Salad – this recipe is very simple to make and just as quick to throw together.
I’ve included a variety of fresh vegetables including cherry tomatoes, English cucumber, olives, and green onions.
My easy Pasta Salad is pulled together with a tasty white wine vinaigrette and of course I used gluten free pasta in my version.
