The words “refreshing” and “filling” rarely go together when describing food. Let’s be honest: Most of the time, food is either one or the other, not both. But with this tasty cold pasta salad, you can have the best of both worlds.

This salad is the perfect dish to take to summer barbecues, potlucks, and get-togethers with friends and family. The recipe is versatile, as you can use the veggies that you (or your guests) enjoy and leave out the ones that you don’t care for. So get creative and dig in!
