Pesto Pasta Salad

The food-snobbery factor is high on this one: It’s pasta salad with homemade sun/oven-dried tomatoes, homemade pesto, homemade vinaigrette, and a freshly roasted red bell pepper. I made the vinaigrette more dijon-y than usual, and added ground pine nuts and walnuts as a topping. Now, FORTUNATELY, you can also just buy pesto and sun-dried tomatoes at the store, and the nuts are totally optional. (I *do* recommend making your own vinaigrette though, since it’s easy and most people have the ingredients.) Either way, it’s great.

PS. Provided you have it in a fully sealed container, this is a FANTASTIC recipe to bring, fully prepared and ready to eat, on a camping trip. (To be safe, eat it the first night. And the nuts, if you have them, just before eating).
