An easy, yet very delicious pasta salad recipe that is the perfect side dish for any BBQ, picnic, pot luck, or cook out.
I know the 4th of July is coming up so I’m trying to be timely with my posts so as to give you as many good ideas before the holiday as I can. Normally I’m one of those food bloggers who is scrambling to get out holiday recipes like 2 days before the actual holiday, but this last minute trip to Hawaii has forced me to be organized. I should plan trips here more often!
I made this great pasta salad a few weeks ago when we had my in-laws over for dinner and it would be perfect for any BBQ plans you may have. It doesn’t even have to be a BBQ, it can be an indoor non-cookout dinner, of course.
Pasta salads are so easy to make and no matter what you add to them, as long as the veggies are good and fresh, you use a good quality dressing, and give it time to chill for the flavors to get to know each other, it will be delicious. This one is best to left to sit overnight in the ‘fridge! Even Mr. Wishes, who isn’t all that fond of pasta salad, said it was very good!
You can even add green and black olives (I love olives), salami, fresh mozzarella, anything you like! Or cut up some grilled chicken and throw it on top to make this a meal. Enjoy this tasty, light side dish for these hot summer days!
