Leftover pasta salad

After the big "semi-local foods" cookout, there was a fair mix of leftovers. I was getting tired of eating the same old thing just a day or so later, so I decided to try something different.

We had a bunch of the leftover grilled mixed veggies (bell pepper, hot pepper, eggplant, squash, onions).

We had some leftover caprese salad (mixed tomato slices, fresh mozzarella, basil leaves).

And we had leftover wonderfully blanched green beans - they were barely crisp, but still had their color.

So I boiled up some pasta and threw all the goodies together, then added just a little sugar, veggie oil and cider vinegar....yum! I think it looked - and tasted - pretty good!

What a yummy way to recycle all those leftover goodies! In a couple of days I'll be looking to see what you make out of the leftover pasta salad. ;-D
