Make the most of the tail end of summer with filling, nutrient-packed and delicious pasta salad! Pasta salad is endlessly customizable, meaning you can add in as many in-season veggies as you want. Bonus points if you buy at a farmer’s market!
Ashlee Roffe, Nutrition Director at Swedish Hospital, shares one of her favorite pasta salad recipes that’s sure to be a crowd pleaser at any special lunch or dinner. This is a great option to add some good fiber (veggies and whole wheat pasta), healthy fats (avocado and olive oil), and protein (pine nuts and feta cheese) to your diet. Enjoy it as a side dish, or make it the star of the show.
