Pasta Salad

1 pkg. Macaroni spirals
4 green onions, chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 cucumber, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 cup almonaise
1 TB salad mustard
1 TB tamari (or Nama Shoyu, or soy sauce)
1/8 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup brown rice vinegar
1 tsp celery seed
1 TB parsley

Cook pasta and mix in a salad bowl with other vegetables. Combine other ingredients to create dressing and pour over pasta and vegetables. Stir well, chill and serve.

Almonaise

Put ½ cup raw soaked almonds and ½ cup water in blender. Blend until smooth. While blender is still blending, slowly drizzle 1 to ¼ cups light olive oil into blender. Watch the mixture as the “well” in the center slowly closes and then the oil starts to bead on top before it goes down. This means it’s done. Add about 3 TB lemon juice into mixture and blend until combined, at this point it will be very think and might need to be stirred by hand.
