I saw a version of a Fall Vegetable pasta salad on Rabbitsandwolves Instagram page and it looked perfect for a fall day! I changed mine up a little bit and used some different veggies and made my dressing differently. I didn’t want to use oil so didn’t want to use vegan mayo so I made a maple mustard dressing instead. I topped with a few green onions and it was delish! Next time I would make more of the dressing because it started getting dry after a while and the leftovers needed more. I think the pasta soaked it up! It would be great for a crisp fall picnic or an easy dinner.
