Summer Time Fun Pasta Salad

Recipe by  

"A light pasta salad both adults and kids will LOVE. This is my own creation I am sure many have already tried. You can add or take away from this recipe. I usually serve crowds of 10 to 20 people, but I love to entertain so I also always serve this, spinach dip, potato and green salad, chip with dip and wings...this dish is always a hit!"

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • I prefer too make this the night before. If you do not have time I suggest letting it sit for a few hours before serving. If you use chicken or ham, cut it into small bite-sized pieces.
