“A magazine gave me the idea for the combination of veggies in this pasta salad, but gave no actual recipe, so this is what I came up with. I was in a fantastic mood and came up with this light, refreshing salad to reflect my mood and the wonderful Spring day. I think if you happen to have some leftover steamed salmon or chunks of white tuna, that would be a nice addition as well. I did not measure while creating this, so please feel free to adjust all seasonings to your liking. If you don't like onions, you could use minced shallots, red bell pepper or some scallions instead. If you don't have rocket, you may use arugula, mizuna or watercress.”
