Who doesn’t love BBQ season?  So, you’ve been asked to bring a side to your next weekend fiesta, but you’re not sure what to bring.  Well, perfect timing, because I have a super simple pasta salad fit for a large crowd.

I had this salad years ago when a friend brought it to a BBQ we were throwing and, since then, we’ve made several variations.  Not only is it great as a side dish, but it also works well if you like to make big batch lunches for the week.  Throw in some protein like chicken or chickpeas and you’ve got a great all around dish.

Alas, this is likely my last blog post for the rest of the summer.  I can’t wait to  start sharing new ideas and recipes from our new space in the fall.  In the meantime, I hope you all have a fabulous end to summer!  Of course I will still be ever present on social media, so let’s stay connected.
