It’s Meatless Monday again…join us to try a meatless menu once a week! Also, if you have a favorite meatless dish you’d like to share, check out Midnight Maniac Meatless Monday each week. This week, I’m posting my husband John’s pasta salad recipe.
John’s Veggie Pasta Salad
1 pound dried whole grain rotini
2 roma tomatoes, diced
1 small onion, diced
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons vinegar of your choice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup sweet relish
2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
seasoned salt to taste
Cook pasta according to package directions. In a colander, rinse with cold water and allow to drain thoroughly.
In a large bowl, combine pasta with oil and vinegar. Add garlic, tomatoes, and onion, and stir well. Add seasoning and relish; adjust seasonings to taste, if necessary. My husband uses homemade basil vinegar for this recipe, but you can use whatever vinegar you prefer.
Last week, we served this dish with homemade sweet potato hummus and pita bread. Hope you’ll try this recipe soon!
