Veggie Pasta Salad

Nutritional label

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Recipe makes: 6 servings

Ingredients:
  • 3 c. uncooked whole-wheat pasta
  • 1 c. frozen shelled edamame
  • 1 c. broccoli florets, coarsely chopped
  • 3 tbs. olive oil
  • ¼ c. red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbs. honey
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 small red bell pepper, diced small
  • 1/3 c. black olives, sliced
Equipment and supplies:
  • Large pot for cooking pasta
  • Large bowl for mixing
Instructions:
  1. Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until al dente (about 8-10 minutes). Drop edamame and broccoli into the boiling pasta water about 2 minutes before the pasta is done cooking just to soften them up slightly. Drain everything into a colander and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together olive oil, vinegar, honey, and pepper. Add pasta, olives, and veggies to the dressing. Toss to coat.
  3. Refrigerate the salad until cold and serve (also can be served at room temperature). The salad will keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
