Ingredients

Directions

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Prepare the pasta according to the package directions, or until slightly past al dente(cooked but not mushy).
  • Meanwhile, make the dressing. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, mustard, garlic, mixed herbs, red pepper flakes, and salt.
  • Drain the pasta, toss it with a little olive oil (so that it doesn’t stick together) and let it cool to room temp. 
  • Transfer to a large bowl with the tomatoes, chickpeas, spinach, lettuce, cucumbers, basil, mint, and walnuts. Pour the dressing and toss to coat. Season to taste with more lemon, salt, pepper, and/or a drizzle of olive oil, if desired, and serve.
