  • Whisk olive oil, vinegar, and honey together in a bowl; drizzle over pasta and toss to coat. Fold tomatoes, sweet onion, cucumber, carrots, celery, garlic, green onions, parsley, and cilantro individually into the pasta mixture to assure even distribution. Season with black pepper.

I had no rotini so I used orecchiette pasta which worked out well. You get so much color from the vegetables that I don't think that tri-color pasta would enhance presentation. I used mini-cukes so no need to peel and added a little more honey to suit our tastes. After refrigeration the pasta really soaked up the dressing so I think I'd add more dressing the next time. This is a nice pasta salad with a lot of fresh veggies and was enjoyed on a hot summer day. Read More
