We opened our pool last week, which means that summer is on the way!
Time for pool parties, cookouts and s'mores by the fire pit.
With graduation parties and Mother's Day coming up soon, I thought I would share the
recipe for our favorite pasta salad. Pasta salad is perfect for any celebration and it's so
easy to make! Use whatever shape pasta you like and then add your favorite veggies.
We like to keep it pretty simple with cucumber, carrots, tomato and a little red onion.
I use Italian salad dressing and salad supreme spice to give it some zip!
Instead of plastic wrap, I use these fun airtight lids by Charles Viancin. The lids fit on
any smooth rim bowl or pot, creating an airtight seal to keep food fresh and flies away
at a picnic! They have so many fun styles to choose from, but the watermelon lids are
You can use them in the microwave, stovetop, dishwasher and they are oven safe up
to 428 degrees. They are available in four different sizes, including this cute drink
cover for my morning tea.
And how about that daisy aqua spatula! I love a pretty spatula! Charles Viancin spatulas
are available in sunflower and poppy too. Perfect for spring and summer baking!
Our favorite pasta salad is especially delicious with fresh vegetables right out of the
garden! I've been making it for years and hope that you will enjoy it too.
