Best Pasta Salads for Summer
There is no summer or BBQ cookout without a good pasta salad. This popular dish shines on our tables during the hot months. Pasta salad is a dish made with cooked and chilled pasta (most likely a bite-size pasta like farfalle, penne, macaroni, etc.), chopped fresh vegetables, and a creamy or vinaigrette-style dressing.
Pasta salads are served cold and best if assembled right before serving. The vegetables will be crisp and pasta al dente.
