HOW TO MAKE PASTA SALAD
The great thing about them is that most people really love a good salad. You can also cater them to fit your personal tastes and simply leave out or add something you personally love to them!
I recently served this at a family get together we had for my nephew who just returned home from serving a two year mission in the Philippines for our church. There were about 30 people at this gathering and the salad was gobbled right up. Next time I will make extra and save some at home in the fridge for me to eat as leftovers..haha!
