Boil a large, salted pot of water and cook pasta al dente according to package directions. Once it's done, drain it and rinse it under cool water. Let it drain throughly.
Meanwhile, prep your other ingredients and add them to a large salad bowl.
Add dressing ingredients to a small bowl and whisk together.
Add the cooled pasta to the salad bowl along with the dressing. Toss. Add salt & pepper as needed (there's a lot of pasta so I used a generous amount of salt). Adjust oil/vinegar quantities in dressing as needed to get desired taste.
Serve immediately or chill. Salad can be made up to a day ahead and kept in the fridge.
Serves 6-8 depending on how much people eat.
