Summer Pasta(less) Salad
This is based off of a spaghetti salad my mom made when I was growing up. The first time I made the paleo version, I prepped myself before I took the first bite to remind myself it wouldn't be quite as good. I was very wrong! I loved the crisp noodles and flavors of the vegetables so much more than a wheat-based noodle. This is a great side dish to bring to a summer barbecue or party!
