I started with boiling macaroni because this is a cold salad.

When done with macaroni, heat oil a bit. Please note that Olive oil mustn’t be too hot or it will lose it’s nutrients. Now fry mushrooms, peppers, mixed vegetables and add minced garlic and cook for 8-10 mins.

As we all know, veggies musn’t be overcooked otherwise they will lose their juicyness and crunchiness :). Stir and set aside to cool.

Now add macaroni to your veggie mixture, season with lemon & herb spice and black pepper and stir.

When it’s cool enough, add black olives, drizzle balsamic vinegar and serve.
