I know it’s not summer yet…but we’re almost there so I thought I would share an easy side dish perfect for a party or picnic. This pasta salad recipe has been a favorite of my family for years. I posted it here on my blog in the very beginning but wanted to share it again with a printable recipe. It’s one of those dishes that, for some reason, I only make in the summer. Which is crazy because it would be a perfect side dish for the holidays. It makes a ton and is actually better the second day so making it ahead is no problem.You can switch up the veggies according to your taste. After the salad is refrigerated you may need to add a bit more dressing. The pasta seems to soak it up while it’s chilling.
