   Mix dressing in a glass measuring cup.  Ingredient proportions are flexible. Toss vegetables, noodles, and dressing in a bowl.  Chill 2-3 hours (or more – the longer the recipe marinates, the better it gets).

   This recipe is easily modified to suit your dietary needs. Use whole wheat or gluten-free pasta, and organic (or locally sourced) vegetables. Additionally, you could add grilled chicken, beef, venison, or beans, etc.
