Cold Pasta Salad!
I just needed something quick and easy this week and decided to make a pasta salad. It's one I've made before and can easily be fiddled with to fit your mood :)
Just a couple ingredients. You can add in other veggies like cucumber, olives, etc to suit your tastes.
Chop everything up into little bitty pieces while your past cooks. And combine all ingredients.
Really. That easy :)
It's not bad warm but I like it after it's sat in the fridge a bit and the flavors
have had a chance to mix and mingled a little.
Do you have a favorite pasta salad? Cold or Warm?
Do you like a creamy dressing or an oil/vinegar dressing?
Cold Pasta Salad Recipe
1 8oz box pasta of choice

- Allow to cool and serve!
