Today I spent some time in the kitchen assembling refreshing pasta dishes meant to be enjoyed cold. Pasta salads have gained popularity through the years and are a great way to appreciate quality pasta. Unfortunately, in my opinion, they have become very dull, boring, and even abused :(
Often pasta salad is associated with an image of mushy, tri-colored noodles and vegetables that have been sitting in the deli for days. PLEASE do not let this spoil your appetite for something that has potential to be so good!
