In a pasta salad there is pasta to be sure, but notice the second part of the term. That’s right, salad. When you think of salad you think of lettuce and broccoli and tomato and celery.

If you want to go the low calorie route there is always balsamic vinegar or perhaps a few squeezes of lemon to make it special. If you have had a hard workout or tough day you can kick it up a notch by mixing in some mayo or a heavy cream sauce. The pasta salad is your friend and is there to make you happy. You only need to ask.
