This pasta salad is to DIE FOR! It tastes like summer time to me, and it is definitely going to be my new go to side dish to take to summer cookouts and barbecues! It is light, delicious and doesn't have a ton of calories! This is a really easy recipe to throw together at the last minute too, trust me I've already ton that a few times when I didn't know what else to make.

• 2 tsp dijon mustard
• 1/4 tsp oregano
• 1/4 tsp garlic powder
• salt and pepper to taste

Slice vegetables up and in a medium bowl, combine onions, mayonnaise, vinegar, yogurt, mustard, oregano, garlic powder; mix well. Add tomatoes, cucumber, pasta, salt and pepper to taste, toss well and place in a large bowl. Makes around 10 servings.
