After this cooler week and given that it's the end of August, our zucchini plants are coming to an end. But the sweet peppers are kicking into high gear - so it's a great time to get in a really yummy pasta salad.
Whisk together in a small bowl:
¼ cup red wine vinegar
½ tsp sale
1/8 tsp pepper
1 clove garlic
1 T Dijon mustard
¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup fresh basil (chopped)
4 oz/125 g uncooked pasta
Cook pasta, toss with 1/3 of dressing.
2 cups fresh vegetables chopped
(zucchini, sweet peppers, cucumbers, broccoli)
3 medium tomatoes chopped
½ cup sliced olives
Add to pasta and top with remaining dressing.
½ cup fresh basil leaves
2 T fresh parsley
Cover and chill for 4-24 hours.
½ cup parmesan cheese or crumbled feta
Sprinkle on top before serving.
