Food at the speed of life: Pasta salad tangy, healthy

When I was growing up, my mom started making a pasta salad that’s still one of my favorites. (In fact, she made it last time she came to visit.)

It’s cold, so it’s good for summer, and it has a nice variety of colors and flavors and a general light tanginess. It’s healthy, too.

Mom got the recipe from a friend and adapted it. The pasta salad goes well with roast or grilled pork chops and a side of a green veggie like broccoli.
