Greek Pasta Salad

Summer, barbecue, and pasta salads go hand in hand. Grilled burgers, baked beans and pasta salads complete the menu in my house. Plus who doesn’t like a bowl of pasta salad for lunch on a hot summer afternoon. I know I certainly do. Greek pasta salad is right up there with Deli-Style Macaroni Salad and Ham and Cheese Pasta Salad.

Fast and Easy

Pasta salads are super easy to make and many times can be made with on hand ingredients. It’s often easier to just swing by your local supermarket, head to the deli department and order away. This summer, challenge yourself to “make” homemade pasta salads instead of picking some up at the deli counter. Considering the price of a pound of pasta salad at my local deli counter, it’s becoming cheaper to make pasta salads at home. Not only that, but anything made from scratch tastes better.

Consider Mini or Baby

Mini vegetables or baby vegetables are great for so many different reasons. They’re great for kabobs, pasta  salads, potato salads, roasting, stir fry and for smaller families. Baby or mini vegetables cook in half the amount of time as their larger counterparts. This also makes them a great choice for those hurry-up dinner nights. Melissa’s Produce has over 45 different varieties of baby vegetables alone to choose from.
