  1. I'm seriously obsessed with this recipe. Do you ever make a recipe and just go "Damn, I'm SO good" ? Well, this made me say that. It's packed full of flavors and really easy to make. A must try
  2. In a very large bowl add the cooked bow tie (cook according to the package directions), artichoke hearts, black olives, chorizo (or any other salami), red bell pepper, sweet onion, cherry tomatoes, and hearts of palm. Give it a good stir and set aside while you make the vinaigrette
  3. In a bowl add the white balsamic vinegar, olive oil, minced garlic, chopped basil, chopped parsley, thyme leaves, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper, and Parmesan cheese. Give it a whisk and pour the vinaigrette over the pasta salad. Mix completely to combine and so that everything is coated in the vinaigrette
  4. That's it! This recipe keeps so well too so you can make it way ahead of time and just keep it in the refrigerator until you're ready to eat. Perfect Spring/Summer food. Enjoy!
