12-Minute Pasta Salad
OK, OK. It's not ready in twelve minutes. But it only takes twelve minutes of actual effort, so I'm calling it 12-Minute Pasta Salad. If you're making this ahead of time, add just enough dressing to moisten the pasta, and hold the rest until you’re ready to eat. Pasta salad has a tendency to absorb all available liquid, which would leave you with limp, soggy, and yet oddly dry pasta. Feel free to add your choice of protein: edamame, leftover cooked chicken, tuna, beans, or cheese (bocconcini, those little balls of mozzarella cheese, are fun here), just to name a few examples.
