  • 1 box bow-tie pasta
  • 2 medium cucumbers sliced
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes halved
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh parsley or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh green onion


  • Cook pasta according to package directions; drain.
  • In a large bowl, combine pasta, cucumbers, and tomatoes. Use a bowl that is large enough to give you plenty of space to toss all the ingredients together.
  • In a small bowl, combine olive oil, vinegar, garlic powder, salt, and sugar.
  • Pour dressing over pasta mixture and toss to coat.
  • Gently stir in chopped herbs. A soft silicone spatula like these will help keep the pasta from breaking.
  • Refrigerate and serve cold.
