The hot weather calls for a cold dish and I don't think one fits any better than pasta salad. When the weather gets hot I want to eat something cold and I want it to be easy to make. Pasta salad hits all those notes. On top of that, it's filling and so tasty. My take on pasta salad is a Mediterranean combination of Greek and Italian elements. The best of both incredible worlds. When you need something quick to take with you to the park or beach, look no further. This is it.
