Summer Pasta Salad

Leave a comment

I’ve probably made pasta salad four, maybe five, times in my life. I’m more of a “hot food” kind of gal but I can totally see myself making this combo for years to come. Poppy sure did love a non-spicy version of this!

Pasta Salad (serves 4):

  • 1 box cooked pasta of choice
  • 3/4 cup diced cherry tomatoes
  • 1 handful fresh chopped basil
  • 1 cup sautéed mushrooms
  • 1/3-1/2 cup diced fresh mozzarella
  • 1-2 tbsp crunchy chili onion crunch
  • 1 tbsp EVOO
  • 1-2 diced figs (optional but highly recommended)
  • Balsamic glaze to top (this is not balsamic dressing!)

Toss all the ingredients together in a large bowl and serve! Refrigerate leftovers until you’re hungry again. Do you like pasta salad? If so, what’s your favorite recipe? Leave a comment below so I can be inspired to make more cold pasta dishes like this.
