It is technically a salad but practically a meal in its own right! The Pasta Primavera Salad with Vegetables is an easy and quick yet sumptuous preparation of cooked fusilli tossed together with crunchy lettuce, fresh and vibrant veggies and a refreshing curd-based dressing with celery and spring onion greens.

Don’t forget the dash of pepper before you stash this into the refrigerator for a while! Try this on a hot summer’s day and you will want to keep repeating the experience – it beats hot, steaming food hands down.

You can also try other wholesome salads with pasta like Veg Macaroni Salad with Fruits and Mint Dressing or Shell Pasta Salad with Pesto Dressing .

The dressing is spot on... deliciously palatable.. this recipe has a great combination of textures... the crunch from the lettuce the smoothness from the dressing and the pasta and the volume from cherry tomatoes and the broccoli.. very refreshing and a great appetizer..
