Eight Great Pasta Salad Recipes

I’m only 50% Italian, but I’ve always only identified myself as such. This sounds awful, but I couldn’t even tell you what the other 50% is. My mom calls herself a mutt 🙂

That said, I’m a disappointing Italian – pasta is NOT my favorite. While my husband used to eat a pound of pasta in one sitting, I don’t eat it often. It leaves me bloated, so I tend to save pasta for nights before my long runs.

I do make an exception, though – and that’s pasta salad. Maybe it’s because I love barbecues, or because I love all “salads” – chicken, egg, tuna, potato, you name it. I can’t get enough of chilled pasta salads this summer. Here’s a round up of eight great ones I’ve tried recently!
