Copycat dishes are rarely as good as the real deal, however this pasta salad tastes almost just like the kind I always order at Zoe’s Kitchen. If you have never eaten their pasta salad before, then you can certainly go to the restaurant and try it, OR you can just whip up this recipe I’m sharing in your very own kitchen.
Zoe’s Kitchen is one of my favorite places to eat because they are for the most part, very healthy. It’s not like eating fast food. In fact, everything I’ve had always tastes fresh and I don’t leave feeling full or heavy. I hate that feeling of being stuffed, except maybe on Thanksgiving or Christmas when there is soooo much good food to gobble up. 🙂
I wish I could say I came up with this pasta salad recipe on my own, however, I didn’t. It’s good ole’ Pinterest that saved the day and they didn’t disappoint.
