3 Best Pasta Salads

The Top 10

Pasta is a wonderful base for main dish salads. It comes in so many shapes and forms, and is always quick and easy to make. You can combine it with everything from chicken to fruit to grains or seafood. One of the best things about pasta salad is that you should make them ahead of time, preferably in the morning or late at night when it's cooler. These are some of the best pasta salads in my repertoire. And you love them too!
