Tasty Summer Pasta Salad


Pasta Salad is one of my favorite summer salads. It’s great when served as a side, but very often we have it as a main dish for dinner. I love to add a lot of fresh veggies for lighter version, or some shredded tuna or chicken, when I want to make it more filling.

Often it is used as a soup accompaniment, but in this recipe it will do great as one of the ingredients of this delicious summer salad. If you don’t have orzo on hand, you can use any other type of small pasta or even replace it completely with rice or quinoa.
