For the Dressing


You will want to choose a hearty pasta so it doesn’t go mushy, we used spiral for ours.


1. Bring 8 cups of water to a boil in a medium pot. Add in a bit of salt and your dry pasta. 2. Cook the pasta stirring occasionally for 10-12 minutes. 3. Once cooked remove from heat and strain. Then put the cooked pasta in the fridge to cool while you prep the rest of the ingredients. 4. Dice carrots, onion, pepper and kale then set aside. 5. For the dressing combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk until fully combined. 6. Assemble all of your pasta salad ingredients in a large bowl and toss with the dressing. 7. Serve and enjoy!
