Cannellini Pasta Salad

Salads are fun don’t you think?  I mean, think about it….you start with a base of greens (which you can vary anytime you want) and then you get to add anything you desire!  I love it.  Meat, no meat?  Fruit or Veggies, or both!?  Creamy dressing or Vinaigrette?  Croutons, bacon bits, cheese???  I love playing with salad, and I think you will love this new salad just as much as we did!
