Heirloom Pasta Salad

We grow Heirloom Tomatoes in our garden and we even save our seed from one year to the next to ensure the purity of the seed. If you are ever able to try a Heirloom Tomato then you will never forget the distinctive flavor. Today I have combined a great dressing along with some other vegetables and a farfalle pasta to make this delicious salad. This salad could be a great luncheon entree and no doubt I will be taking this one to a covered dish event very soon. We really enjoyed this salad and sure hope you do.
