This is a fun little pasta salad that I thought stood out from the monotonous crowd of pasta salads. Yes, it does indeed have mayo. Yes, it has carrots and bell pepper and pasta (I should hope a pasta salad has pasta). And, yes, it's really really good. But, the common things stop there. Cranberries lend bursts of sweetness, and the broccoli adds a different bit of texture when you get a piece. I always jump at the chance to use sunflowerseeds in cooking, and here was my chance, so I jumped... And so, I ended up with a very flavourful and colourful pasta salad, that also traveled very well in my lunches. I killed two... pieces of tofu with one stone!
