The Perfect Picnic Pasta Salad
Pasta salad is almost always the most disappointing side dish at the picnic or cookout, but this recipe shows you how to transform what is normally an "afterthought" to a dish that's good enough to enjoy on its own, or as the perfect complement to grilled meat. Top this with extra fresh chopped herbs if you like.
Use a mild-flavored olive oil, or an olive and vegetable oil blend. You can use sugar snap peas instead of snow peas.
You can serve this right away, but for best results, chill for a few hours before serving.
