summer side

Pasta salad might be my favorite cold side dish ever, which is a shame considering how the carbs involved like to mingle around my midsection and overstay their welcome. 

I was asked to bring a side dish (not a green salad) to a friend's house for dinner this weekend, and I literally could think of no other options besides pasta salad.  One-track mind, I tell you.  And of course you know me, I couldn't just look through my recipes that I already have - oh, no - I had to go out and find a new one. 

So in celebration of my love of pasta salads, here are a few of my favorites:

B-A-T Pasta Salad (Bacon, Avocado and Tomato) - I made it this weekend and didn't even freak out over the mayo! 

Sun-dried Tomato Pasta Salad - Looks amazing.  Ree can do no wrong in my book. 

Greek Pasta Salad - mushrooms, tomatoes, feta cheese...what's not to love?

Bacon Cheddar Ranch Pasta Salad - I think Kell would be all over this one.

Caprese Pasta Salad - I can think of few things better than the combination of caprese and pasta.

Do you have a favorite pasta salad recipe?  Please share.  I've never met one I didn't like...
