Vegetables, pasta and salsa combine well in this salad, making it one of my favorites. Make the salsa well in advance and store it, and whip up this salad in a jiffy with blanched vegetables and pasta to please your guests. I have used penne pasta, but you are free to use any pasta of your choice; in fact, try mixed pasta for a colourful treat.
