  1. Love the tricolor pasta, makes it look so interesting! We love salads, our favorite at the moment is chopped cucumber, peppers, olives and feta mixed with some cold quinoa. We use the same simple dressing as yours, lemon and olive oil with plenty of black pepper. It’s nice and refreshing in the heat!
