This salad can be done in 20 minutes or less and is packed with tons of flavor. I've made this salad for many potlucks and it's always a hit.

1.Cook pasta according to directions and drain, set aside in a large bowl.
2. Chop the vegetables and add them to the pasta. Add the cheese and basil to the pasta.
3.Mix well.
4.In a small bowl, whisk the garlic salt, oregano, tomato paste and vinegar together. Stream in the olive oil while continuing to whisk.
 5.Once the oil is incorporated, pour the dressing over the pasta salad, add the pepper and toss well.

It looks good, but the ingredients make me hesitant. I think if someone made it for me, I could give it a try. LOL, I'm kind of a wuss though! I haven't had a good pasta salad ina while!

I'm not a big picnic food fan (don't like potato salad either...I know...weird, right?), but I know some people who would LOVE this.
