Recipe Notes

Balsamic Veggie Pasta Salad in a small bowl

This salad is best when eaten fresh, but leftovers can be refrigerated and it is tasty the next day too. The dressing coating over the mushrooms prevents the mushrooms from turning brown. The mushrooms were even tastier the second day after sitting in the dressing overnight.

This recipe could be made without pasta for those trying to cut out carbohydrates, however if this is your wish be sure to reduce the amount of balsamic vinegar and sour cream used.
