Mediterranean Fusilli Pasta Salad
25 mins (prep 15, cooking 10)
15 ingredients
4 servings
This is a light and easy summer salad. Have made it many times since I found it a while ago in a recipebinder. The recipe can of course be doubled or trebled for a crowd. What I mostly like about it is the twang and yet sweetness of the balsamic vinegar plus that the amount of oil is not overpowering. But that is a personal preference.
