Whole Wheat Veggie Pasta Salad

This is a great lunch, snack or side dish pasta salad! It's refreshing, easy and very healthy....Try to use only organic produce or local grown produce but it's great to try all sorts of combos depending on what you have in your fridge! (Black olives or some reduced fat feta would have been nice too if I had some handy)
  • large 1/4 cup dry whole wheat pasta (cooked)
  • 1/4 cup canned organic white beans drained (no sodium added)
  • 1/3 of a cucumber chopped (skin on for more nutrients)
  • 6 grape tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1 thick slice of red onion, chopped
  • 2 tsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp. chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbs. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic


Cook your dry pasta and allow to cool (or run it under cold water). Throw all ingredients together and enjoy. I made this the night before and the flavors really seemed to mix together in the fridge overnight- yum! Enjoy!!
