VEGAN PASTA SALAD

  3. 1/2 cup of grape or cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered
  4. 1 small green bell pepper, chopped (about 1 cup)
  5. 1 can of sliced black olives (mine was 6 ounces)
  6. 1/4 cup of chopped fresh parsley or cilantro (I used parsley)
  7. Salt and pepper to taste
  8. 1/3 cup of olive oil
  9. 2 tablespoons of white balsamic vinegar
  10. 1/2 teaspoon of oregano
  11. 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  12. 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  13. 1/4 teaspoon of crushed red pepper
  14. Good pinch of sugar

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • While the pasta cooks, chop up your veggies and make your dressing.
