Sweet-Sour Pasta Salad Recipe

Publisher Photo
Fresh garden vegetables add color and crunch to this attractive salad. Its pleasant vinaigrette-type dressing is sparked with ground mustard and garlic. I like the look of the tricolor spirals, but you can substitute other pasta shapes or use what you have on hand. -Launa Shoemaker, Landrum, South Carolina
