I know, I know, the world needs another pasta salad like it needs more debt! But, you must try this simple and delicious recipe. I liked pasta salad okayish, but often found macaroni salad to be too sweet and dressed in too much mayonnaise. The Italian dressing version was a bit better, but it did not knock my socks off.
We were grilling hamburgers on a hot (97°F), humid, sunny day. I was looking for a cold, loaded with fresh veggies, side dish that would not take much cooking time. Of course, pasta salad came to mind. But how could I make it more appetizing? Here is what I came up with. After tasting it, I knew I had to share it. Even my non-pasta salad lovers liked this dish.
