The past few weeks we have been trying to encourage summer to come by trying to hold several outdoor barbeques. For some reason, every time we try and barbeque it either rains or snows. Utah is known for it’s crazy and cold weather, but I feel like enough is enough. If you are lucky enough to live somewhere warm and you are getting good use of your patio and outdoor grill, feel fortunate 😉 I am excited to share this VERY simple recipe with you. This pasta salad screams summer to me–light, zesty, fresh vegetables from the garden, and easy to make on those busy nights. My mom has been making this recipe my entire life, so to me it is a home-grown favorite. This recipe makes quite a bit, so it is great to take somewhere with a big crowd, or you may want to half the recipe if it is for a family of 4-6. Enjoy!
