Vegetable Radiatore Summer Salad

I purchased this vegetable radiatore from Trader Joe's. The ingredients are Organic Durum Wheat Semolina, Spinach, Beet, Red Bell Pepper and Paprika. This salad is great for gatherings or just to make and nibble on for a few days! (this is what we do) This is a keeper and one to share!  Make ahead of time to so the flavors can blend and to get cold in the refrigerator!
