This is a excellent salad for a summer gathering. You can adjust the amount of ingredients and make the salad the size you want.  It should be made the day before to blend flavors and will keep in refrigerator for a few days.  I purchased a small bag of 5 little cukes. No waste, cut rinse them and slice or eat out of hand. They are grown in Canada called Cool Cukes. 

Rotini Salad

1 1/2 lemons juiced
1/4 c olive oil
1/4 c white wine vinegar
1 1/2 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1 heaping tbsp of parsley

In a small bowl or a jar with a tight fitting lid mix the above ingredients. In a large bowl combine the salad ingredients then add the dressing and mix all together.
