Hi, I'm Devra Gartenstein with Quirky Gourmet. Today I'm going to show you how to make a cold Mediterranean pasta salad. So it's a salad that uses tomatoes and basil, which is a wonderful Mediterranean flavor combination. And then perk it up with some cucumbers. And so I'm going to start with some shell pasta. Use fresh basil. I'm going to put the leaves together. I'm going to roll them up and then I'm just going to slice them into ribbons. You can use some dried tomatoes. Dried tomatoes in oil. So they've got some moisture in them. And they just have a lot more flavor than fresh tomatoes because when they've been dried, the flavor has been concentrated. Then I'm going to add some chopped cucumber. Little bit of green onion. Some olive oil. Some balsamic vinegar, which always goes great with basil and tomatoes. Little bit of salt. And some black pepper. And there you have a cold Mediterranean pasta salad.
