Chilled Mediterranean Pasta Salad

What you need: 

1 lb. uncooked pasta (if you prefer, use multicolored)
3 small very ripe tomatoes, cut into wedges
1 c. kalamata or Nicoise olives, pitted and halved
1 package seitan, cut into strips
1 can artichoke hearts (packed in water), quartered
1 handful baby spinach
1/2 c. red onion, chopped
1 handful parsley, chopped
1-2 tsp. lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
Archived comment by: optional:
capers, minced garlic, hot pepper flakes, diced bell pepper, diced cucumber, grated vegan cheese

What you do: 

Cook the pasta until al dente. Rinse with cold water and set aside.
Meanwhile, combine all the ingredients except lemon juice in a big bowl. Add the pasta, and then dress lightly with the lemon juice. Taste for salt and pepper, and chill for at least an hour. Serve cold.
I think this salad is unique because it is a complete source of protein and offers many vegetables. Serve with pita and hummus and a green salad for a complete summer meal!
