Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta Salad - Vegetarian, Gluten-Free

It’s pasta salad season and we’re excited to make delicious, fresh and easy gluten-free patio favorites all summer long. This fresh and tangy salad is packed with veggies for a healthy and light, yet satisfying meal or side dish. Feel free to use any pasta shape you prefer; we used Cauliflower Linguini but Fusilli would be great too!
