A Summer Pasta Salad – Is It Suitable For A Diabetic

In the summer, I love to make salads and I do enjoy a good pasta salad.  As Mr. D is diabetic, I have dismissed making them because pasta can so easily cause a sugar spike.  We recently visited our local library and I borrowed a book entitled, “Southern Living – Forty Years Of Our Best Recipes.  I saw this recipe and I thought I might be able to make it for us if we use the whole grain pasta.  I think it is a good choice because it includes a vinaigrette and there are so many available in the supermarket now. I think you could make your own dressing if you wanted to.  The fresh vegetables would help to balance eating the pasta.  When I visit the grocery store today, I plan to buy the ingredients and make this over the weekend.

I love the colors and the freshness of the vegetables in the picture of the salad.  I do think the recipe seems fairly simple and it would be a great way to use some of those fresh summer vegetables and herbs.
