Pasta Salad with Black Beans (Vegan Recipe)

By Pavani @napavani
Memorial day is right around the corner and if you are looking for a dish to make, then here's an easy to make and tasty Pasta Salad with black beans and veggies. It's completely vegan, if you use vegan mayo but if you have regular mayo then go ahead and use it instead.
Vegan Pasta Salad I am always looking for opportunities to try new dishes, so last weekend I took this pasta dish when I went to meet my blog buddies, Sushma, Rajani, Usha, Mir and Amara. The good thing about this dish is it can be made ahead of time and chilled until ready to serve, which makes it a great dish to make for picnics. barbecues or for take along lunches.
Recipe is from Jazzy Vegetarian cooking show. It's very colorful with the addition of all the colorful veggies and black beans. It is tossed in a mayo-dijon mustard dressing.
