This salad was inspired by a sample that my kids were given at the grocery store.  They loved it so I simply had to try to recreate it.  They kept asking me to make it so I headed into the kitchen to give it a go.  I was pleasantly surprised when they said that they loved it, they are the first ones to point our flaws in any dishes I make!

First, I gathered my ingredients.  This black bean pasta salad recipe calls for only a handful of ingredients:  noodles, black beans, feta cheese, sun roasted tomatoes in oil, fresh parsley, capers, a lemon and salt and pepper.

Second, throw them all into a bowl together and enjoy.

Third, eat it up!
