How Do I Make this Herby BBQ Pasta Salad?

  1. Boil a large pot of salted water, and cook pasta according to package. Drain and rinse noodles under cold water to stop them cooking. Set aside.
  2. Dice the cucumber and tomatoes, slice the peppers into fine bite-sized ribbons, chop the carrot and the spinach, and all all veggies to a bowl. Add the pasta.
  3. Add all dressing ingredients to a bowl or mason jar, and stir well to combine. Pour dressing over the pasta salad, toss well, and enjoy!
  4. For leftovers – I like to take a quart sized mason jar, fill half with pasta salad, and half with fresh spinach and enjoy for a quick and easy lunch!
