1 pound fresh or frozen broccoli, chopped (about 4 cups)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
¼ cup red wine vinegar
¼ cup rice vinegar or any other vinegar of choice
¼ cup olive oil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and chill.
While pasta is cooking, prepare the dressing. In a bowl, combine garlic, mustard, vinegars, oil, oregano, salt, and pepper. Whisk together using a whisk or fork and set aside. Alternatively, you can add all ingredients to a mason jar, screw the lid on, and shake until combined.
In a bowl, mix cooked rotini, bell pepper, and broccoli together. Give the dressing another mix and add to the salad mixture, tossing to combine.
Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving. Serve cold and enjoy!
