pasta salad

there's not much of a need for a recipe when it comes to pasta salad. all that measuring should be saved for baking when it really matters. pasta salad is meant to be a little of this, a little of that, combined with whatever ingredients happen to be in your refrigerator when you finally remember to clean it out. in this case we have half a grated zucchini, a couple large handfuls of grape tomatoes, lots of leftover honey-mustard salmon, a delightful wedge of nutty parrano cheese and a very basic lemon vinaigrette.
