Pasta, Cheese & Veggie Salad

{Pin This}

Thank you to my beautiful grandma who shared this super yummy pasta salad with me! I love how colorful and full of flavor it is! I will be making it again this weekend for our Memorial Day family get together. Pasta salads are always a favorite!

To make this TERRAfit-friendly, use whole grain pasta.
