  • Cook the noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside to cool.
  • Meanwhile remove the skins of the cucumber and slice lengthwise. Place two halves flat and slice again so you have 4 long slivers. Slice the slivers into small cucumber chunks.┬áRinse grape tomatoes and set a side. Peel carrots and then grate the carrots. Chop the broccoli into tiny pieces. Cut the onion into small dices. Put the vegetables in a small bowl and set aside.
  • In a large bowl combine the cooled Rotini noodles, cucumber slices, grated carrots, grape tomatoes, broccoli, onion and goat cheese crumbles. Add 1 cup of Italian dressing. Combine well and garnish with freshly ground black pepper.
  • Serve right away or chill this salad for a couple of hours before serving. This allows for an even more flavorful salad as the flavors combine.
