Bright Veggie Pasta Salad

 

Ingredients:

  • Rice Pasta, about 3 cups cooked
  • Red Pepper, ½ pepper diced
  • Red Onion, ½ onion diced
  • Carrot, ½ medium shredded
  • Kale, 1 leaf chopped finely
  • Sunflower Seeds, ¼ cup
  • Pumpkin Seeds, ¼ cup
  • Sundried Tomatoes, 3 chopped
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Super Simple Herb Dressing, about ¼ cup

Direction:

  1. Cook pasta as package directs, with olive oil and salt – while the pasta is cooking prep your veggies.
  2. Lightly sauté kale in coconut oil for about 1- 2 minutes, set aside.
  3. When pasta is cooked, drain and transfer to a bowl.
  4. Add the prepped veggies (not the seeds yet!), kale, sundried tomatoes and dressing while pasta is still warm. Stir well to coat.
  5. Sprinkle with seeds, salt & pepper right before serving.

This salad keeps well in the fridge for a couple of days and is really great for lunch. It can be lightly sauteed and served warm.

A fabulous gluten-free, allergy-free, vegan recipe for potlucks and BBQs.
