Italian Pasta Salad

I really like pasta salads for lunch. This one is delicious with plenty of colors. It’s so much more appetizing when it’s colorful don’t you think !?!

In this recipe we have a nice balance of soft, crisp, salty and sweet! It’s a salad enough to support a meal, but if you want, it would also be a very nice  as a side dish! It’s a perfect recipe also to allow you to spend leftover pasta! Take the opportunity to cook a large quantity that you will use in other meals during the week!

Easy to prepare and  tasty this salad has everything and we loved it!
It’s always that way  that I prepare pasta salads: a marinade, fresh vegetables, cooked or raw. It will always be well seasoned and never sticky !
In this recipe, I also added a little delight that are mini artichokes with olive oil.
This salad is balanced and will make everyone happy !
