Pasta Salad with Zippy Dressing

This should be called “I’m in the mood for pasta so let’s see what’s in the fridge that will work” because that’s what I did so this is pasta plus whatever was in the fridge topped with a dressing that sounded good in theory and then actually tasted good when put together.

1 pound pasta of your choice

1 stalk celery, sliced

2 carrots, thinly sliced

3 – 4 mini cucumbers, cut into bite size pieces

1/2 – 1 cup sugar snap peas, cut into bite size pieces

1/2 – 1 cup broccoli, cut into bite size pieces

1/2 cup olive oil

1/4 cup white wine vinegar

juice from 1 lemon

Cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain and rinse with cold water.  Pour in large bowl, add all vegetables and toss.  In a separate small bowl, combine olive oil, vinegar and lemon juice with whisk then pour over pasta and stir to combine.
