Rid your mind of any preconceived notions about what a pasta salad should have or look like. This one – featuring lightly browned Brussels sprouts, slivered red onion, glazed walnuts and crumbled blue cheese – is not something you’re likely to find at a Fourth of July picnic. Instead, the delightful combination of rich flavors and hearty textures make it far more appropriate for wintertime.
