Pasta & Vegetable Salad

My journey with salads continues. I have often had pasta salads at buffets in restaurants. Some were indifferent while others were good. But I had never tried one at home. I decided to change that status last week. Unfortunately, I am not such a great pasta fan – and therefore do not stock many varieties at home. Ideally, I would have liked to use fusilli for this salad. But all I had on hand was macaroni. But, I assure you, it was not a compromise at all since the salad turned out really well and Hari and I polished every last morsel!
