This is my own take on one of my favorite items from the Macy’s Deli. In college I worked a part time job at Macy’s in the summer and this was my go to lunch until the Deli was closed at our location. After pouting for a brief period I decided to try to make it on my own and was thrilled when I came up with this delicious creation. This pasta salad can be served both cold or warm, although I prefer it cold.
