Summer Pasta

Set peace of mind as your highest goal, and organize your life around it. Brian Tracy

Welcome Monday with open arms! Around these parts…someone has turned up the heat! 2 days in the 90’s! Not sure we have seen Spring, we jumped right into Summer! Now I am NOT complaining at all! I am loving the sunshine and being able to be outside even if just for a bit! I am not wanting to heat up the oven too much though! This week I am going to share a few cold salads with you. Great to make ahead and have in the refrigerator for these hot days! Today’s recipe can be eaten hot or cold, I have always served it cold. I have been making this salad for quite a long time and I do change it up a bit. The original recipe comes from a great cookbook called Dream Dinners! Check it out sometime! In the meantime…stay cool where you are and ENJOY!
