The key to this salad is BASIL. Fresh basil. Go get some.
Basil Summer Salad
2-3 Roma tomatoes, chopped
1 cucumber, chopped
1 can of black olives, sliced in half
1 cup fresh basil leaves (you can chop them if you want)
2-3 TB Parmesan cheese
2 TB olive oil
1 TB apple cider vinegar, if desired
garlic to taste (powder or minced is fine)
salt and pepper to taste
3 cups of pasta noodled, cooked and drained
Then stir in some pasta noodles of your choice. These are No Yolk Noodles.
I also add some mozzarella cheese chunks. I put them in right before serving so they don't get soggy. This night I actually used cheese sticks (cuz that's all I had). Still good.
Make sure it's all mixed in well.
