As the weather gets warmer, food gets simpler and easier. You don't want to spend time in a hot kitchen, yet you want to eat well. These pasta salads
make the ideal side dish for just about any summer meal. They go with everything from burgers to BBQ chicken. They look great on a buffet table if you're making them for a party or picnic. And they can be made in advance.
Choose from my Italian pasta salad with zucchini, marinated artichokes and red peppers, my Mexican pasta salad with black beans and corn and more.
Try one of these recipes tonight, and be sure to post a review.
