summer vegetable salad

This semi heat-wave has me craving fresh veggies and easy recipes. I pinned this pasta salad a few weeks ago, and finally made it.

It. Was. Delicious.

And, it was SUPER easy to make. 

And, if you're not sold yet, it yielded enough for several dinners and lunches.

Ingredients
Bowtie Pasta
1 Red Onion
1 Red Pepper
Zucchini (I used two because I love them)
1 bunch of parsley
1 broccoli head (sliced small)
1 Cup of Feta cheese

Vinaigrette
1/4 cup veggie oil
1/4 cup olive oil
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp Oregano
Minced Garlic
Salt
Pepper

1. Cook pasta as directed and let cool
2. Cut up veggies and set aside
3. Combine all vinaigrette ingredients and set aside
4. When pasta is cooled, combine all ingredients and refrigerate for at least an hour for all the flavors to blend together
5. Serve and enjoy :-)

Drooling yet?
