Pasta salad recipes, 20 of them!!
Gone are the days of the drab elbows floating in a soupy mayo blandness, with the odd piece of celery passing by. These divine pasta salad recipes are pot luck worthy! The type of dish that when the guests taste it, they’re saying “Who made the pasta salad???, I want the recipe!!!!”,…. You can proudly stand up next to the nosy bitchy neighbour who brought pasta salad soup, and spread your arms out like the goddess (or, god) you are, smiling while taking a bow. And they won’t think your egotistical at all, because any of these salads are THAT GOOD.
Here we go!!
