This Italian salad (known in its homeland as insalata alla giardiniera) uses the freshest produce from the vegetable garden to provide it with a wonderful mix of colours, flavours and nutrients. It stores well and is even better the next day.
*White wine vinegar or tarragon vinegar can be used instead of cider vinegar.
*Replace the broccoli with asparagus tips.
*For more fibre, use whole-meal radiatore or another pasta shape.
This salad gives you four servings of vegetables, getting you most of the way towards the goal of eating at least five servings of fruit and vegetables every day. Add a couple of pieces of fruit as snacks, and you will have had a truly healthy day of eating.
