Here’s a nice pasta salad that you can keep vegetarian if you would like. It has all kinds of nutrients in it and is very easy to make. If you want to keep this for a few days, keep the tomatoes separate. Here is what you need for this:
12 oz. cooked al-dente whole wheat pasta
1 large carrot – grated
1 small cucumber – peeled, seeded and chopped
2 tomatoes – peeled and chopped
1 celery stalk – chopped
2 scallions – chopped
1 cup cooked, shredded chicken*
½ cup sliced ripe olives
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1/8 cup olive oil
Place all the ingredients – except for the oil, salt and pepper – in a bowl. Mix well.
Add the salt, pepper and olive oil. Toss to mix well and serve. Enjoy!
*If you want to keep this vegetarian omit the chicken.
