Vegetable Crisper Pasta Salad

So yesterday was monday, and it was one of those days that i woke up ready to start cleaning and organizing! First the kitchen, and then the rest of the house! My refrigerator was a mess and my veggie drawer or crisper was packed with little bits of everything. I mean, 1 small piece of broccoli, 1 corn on the cob, half onion, lots of cucumbers and zucchini, and the list goes on... Since we were to have Grilled Chicken, i needed a side for it, and decided on a veggie pasta salad with everything that was in my crisper and some fresh herbs from my garden! I'll write what i used, but feel free to use what you have.

1lb of farfalle, cooked to packaging intructions
1 cup chopped broccoli, blanched and cooled
1 ear of corn off the cob, blanched and cooled
1 carrot, shredded
1 zucchini, shredded
1 cucumber, cubed
1 stalk celery, cubed
1 tomato, chopped
1/2 large onion, chopped
handful parsley and basil chopped
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup homemade italian dressing
1/2 cup homemade balsamic vinaigrette 

Toss all ingredients together. Season to taste. Refrigerate for 2=3 hours before serving. Stir it well before serving.


  1. Looks delicious!! I'll definitely have to add Italian dressing to my veggie pasta next time!
