This pasta salad is perfect for when you’re crunched for time or you’re just having one of those days where you don’t feel like cooking. Which is exactly why I made this – I really didn’t feel like cooking lunch today. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does I might end up going to the deli, eating out or even getting something at a fast food joint. This recipe is a healthy alternative to either one of those and it’s simple and tasty.

This is more of a serving suggestion than an actual recipe. Basically, use whatever you have on hand. This is meant to be simple and quick using whatever you have in your fridge and pantry. Get creative!
