This classic pasta salad is great served with hamburgers and hot dogs. Add chicken and it can also be the main dish!
It’s a quick and easy meal when you are in a hurry. I always prepare it the day before and let the flavors mingle overnight.
I like to take this for lunch the next day if we have any leftovers!
