Our friends were having their annual kick off the summer BBQ. It was something that we looked forward to every year. They have a gorgeous backyard with a swimming pool and hot tub, fireplace, full kitchen, and everything else that anyone could ever want in a backyard. We take the kids and just have a grand time spending the whole day there. One of the things that I look forward to the most is the food! They always put out a nice spread of all kinds of summery dishes. Then, they ask everyone that shows up to bring a dish to pass as well. This year, they asked me to bring a salad.
I didn’t want to take the traditional macaroni or potato salads. I figured that there would be plenty of those and I don’t like to try and compete with anyone else’s recipe or walk away with the same food that I showed up with. This zesty southwest pasta salad was the perfect dish.
The recipe was posted on Just A Pinch, and I printed it out as soon as I saw it. It looked pretty easy, and sounded super delish. That’s exactly what I got from it too, no surprises here.
