I always look to make things in the summer that are light, fresh and really don't require much cook time because I despise being over a stove for hours. This light pasta salad is perfect for summer days and checks all my boxes.
Picnic, beach day, barbecue... anywhere you bring it, it's perfect! Its lemon and garlic based dressing allows for it to stand outside for a few hours without spoiling. No one needs to worry about that when you are trying to have a nice day with family and friends.
If you are using this for a small picnic, you can obviously half the recipe and you pack portions in Chinese food containers for a fun presentation.
This particular recipe is for a larger crowd.
