Summer Pasta Salad
Updated: Jun 7, 2019
Its officially barbecue season in Manitoba which means the pressure is on to figure out what dish to bring that will be a huge crowd pleaser (not to mention who doesn't secretly love having the best dish at a party?)
My usual go-to is a summer salad or a trusty dip that is quick and simple. Easy at home ingredients that are not complicated and you do not have to run to the grocery store frantically searching for that one thing your recipe calls for.
We had a little get together with Matts cousin and his wife who is expecting last weekend and she told me she LOVES pasta salad. So you know what I brought her? Pasta salad of course. :)
Now lets get into what you all came here for- the Recipe!
