  1. Cook pasta in water according to box instructions.
  2. Drain cooked pasta and let it cool.
  3. Dice celery and green onion and herbs while the pasta is cooling. Mix all ingredients for the dressing in a blender or food processor and blend.
  4. Once pasta is cooled to room temperature, mix in celery and green onion (and other veggies if using) and refrigerate for a couple of hours, or overnight. Store the dressing in a separate container, in the refrigerator.
