My name is Wendy and some of you might remember me from when I visited with you in January and shared my California Quinoa Bowl. I am thrilled to be joining you again today!

I’ve been blogging at Cooking Quinoa for a few years now, and though I love quinoa have been craving a new creative challenge for some time.

Today’s recipe is a pasta salad that is perfect for this time of year when the weather is starting to warm, but produce is not quite at its peak.

One recommendation I would make is that, if tomatoes are still really bad where you are, grape or cherry tomatoes are often a better choice. You can easily substitute a cup of cherry tomatoes halved in this recipe.

  1. This looks delicious Wendy! I love pasta salad but always forget about it somehow. You can’t go wrong with artichokes and chickpeas in my opinion. I love the warm artichoke and chickpea salad on this site actually…
    Now following Mama Balance 🙂

  2. Wow, this sounds amazing, I am definitely saving this one!
