Just a quick one tonight, as I am currently waiting for my hair to dry, and then I need to get my ass in gear and boogie down to Vegan Drinks in about an hour. I didn't want to take the chance that a) Triple Rock serves a salad other than a bunch of lettuce and a couple cherry tomatoes, and b) what if it turns into One of Those Nights and I don't get home in time to blog? So, here I am.
I made this cold, although I will admit that I do like hot pasta dishes thrown on top of a big salad in a bowl from time to time. Maybe I'll get to that this week.
The only parts of this that took any time were the cooking of the pasta and the making of the dressing.
Creamy Pesto Dressing
Two handfuls fresh basil
1 tsp sea salt
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
Extra virgin olive oil
Blend the first four ingredients, and add the oil in a stream until creamy. Salt to taste. Toss with cold pasta and veggies.
