I just love the versatility of a pasta salad.  It can be a side dish or it can be a main dish!  I have complete control over the quality of the ingredients and I can always tweak the recipe a bit to change it up a bit from time to time.  My favorite part about this salad…my kids LOVE it!  It is my go to dinner when I need to make something ahead of time on a busy night and want the option to just scoop and serve!
