Author Notes: I often have salads for lunch. But every vegetarian out there will tell you that that gets old sometimes. So, what's to do? Well, occasionally a switch it up with salad, pasta salad that is. But, this is not your mother's pasta salad from a box. Its a salad, with all the veggies packed in that you would expect, but in a way that you wouldn't. cooking4carnivores
