15 Pasta Salad Recipes for a Summer Picnic

When I think of pasta salad, the first thing that comes to mind is a summer picnic. July is National Picnic Month and I thought it was fitting to create a Pasta Salad collection on Foodie. I wanted my collection to feature the most delicious pasta salad recipes I could find and ones that included fresh, summer ingredients.

I’ve been on my own pasta salad kick here at home and have been making a batch once a week for the last month. I love using fresh herbs and vegetables and creating my own unique flavours.
