Enjoy the refreshing taste of summer with this easy garden fresh pasta salad. Great as a meal or a side dish.
Ingredients
  • 1 box Suddenly Salad Classic Pasta (including the sauce)
  • ½ cup okra, sliced
  • ½ cup green beans, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • ½ cup chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup cucumber, peeled and cut into quarters
  • ¼ cup black olives, sliced in half longways
  • ¾ cup grape tomatoes, sliced in half longways
  • 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
Instructions
  1. Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packaging.
  2. Prepare the sauce from the box according to the package instructions.
  3. As the noodles cook, prepare your vegetables and fruits so they are ready to mix in.
  4. Once the pasta is finished cooking and you've rinsed with cool water and drained according to the instructions, toss the pasta in with the sauce.
  5. Mix in the okra, green beans, chickpeas, cucumber, and olives.
  6. Fold in the tomatoes. The reason I did these after is because tomatoes fall apart more easily so I wanted to make sure they stay in tact.
  7. Gently stir in the apple cider vinegar.
  8. Serve room temperature or chilled.
