20-Minute Plant-Based Mediterranean Pasta Salad
Here's a great way to eat your veggies. This salad is full of flavor, crunch, and nutrition. Its a good source of plant protein, which helps to build muscle.
This makes a large amount of pasta salad, which makes it a perfect recipe to bring to a potluck or dinner party. You can make the recipe and save it to enjoy the whole week.
One of the ingredients that brings delicious flavor is the plant-based feta cheese. You can make your own or now but it in the stores. I found mine at Sprouts Farmers Market, and I'm sure they carry it in many stores nowadays. I used the Violife Feta, and it has good ingredients and great flavor.
