On a hot day a refreshing pasta salad is the way to go. I made the pasta in the morning and let it set until dinner so that the flavors would intensify.
Raw zucchini cut in fourths, but far from perfectly,
Peeled cucumber because in France they peel them and French Husband thinks it it wrong not too,
Flat leaf parsley, plenty of it,
Lemon juice, an entire juicy lemon will do,
Orange peel (if not fresh this is second best),
Green onions chopped finely nature's little halos,
Fresh ginger a tad will do,
Salt to taste.
Toss, and let chill for several hours.
Roasted Cashews would be delicious too.
