Ingredients

  • 5 cups gluten-free pasta*
  • Kosher or fine sea salt - to taste
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup green beans - chopped
  • 1 cup fresh peas
  • cup parsley - chopped
  • cup dill - chopped
  • 4 green onions - sliced
  • Freshly ground black pepper - to taste

For the Lemon Vinaigrette:

  • cup lemon juice
  • cup plus 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 clove garlic - finely chopped

Instructions

  • In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Add a generous pinch of salt and pour in pasta. Cook until just al dente (pasta will continue to cook as it cools).
  • Strain pasta and rinse with cold water. Place back in pot, drizzle with olive oil and stir gently. Cover with a tea towel and let cool.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add chopped green beans, peas, parsley, dill, and green onion. Add cooked pasta.
  • Prepare vinaigrette in a small bowl by whisking together all the dressing ingredients.
  • Pour vinaigrette over pasta salad and mix gently to combine. Add salt and pepper, to taste.

Notes

*To make this a healthier pasta salad, opt for a protein-rich pasta. I used chickpea pasta.
