Summer has finally arrived! To me that means, no hot cooking. I love to make meals that don’t involve the oven as much as possible.
Bring on the salads, sandwiches, and lots and lots of ice cold drinks!
It also means that it’s picnic time out back. So, when the hubby is willing to grill out, I like to make something cool as a side. I have been coming across a lot of cold pasta salad recipes, which sounded perfect for our cookout we were planning over the weekend. I found some cucumbers on sale at the store, so it made sense to do a cucumber pasta salad.
Don’t you agree?
