We have this cute little kiddie pool for the children in the backyard. Almost every summer evening, we slip outside into our own little world to enjoy the water and eat some fresh food. I adore pasta salads – I love the freshness, the convenience, and the plan-ahead-aspect of pasta salads. This Poppy Seed Pasta Salad is delicious when served solo or can sweeten the character of a meal when combined with a side of barbecued chicken. So set up your kiddie pool, put on some sunscreen, and enjoy your summer because your pasta salad dinner is in the refrigerator, chilled, and ready to feed you when your stomach starts “growling.”
Poppy Seed Pasta Salad
1 package ([cooked) noodles – gluten free, wheat, or spelt – it is entirely up to you.
Strawberries – cubed
Mangoes – cubed
Spinach – cut into fine pieces
Walnuts – crushed
Parmesan Cheese (omit for dairy free)
My favorite Poppy Seed Dressing
Mix it, twirl it, drizzle it, chill it, serve it, eat it, and love it.
Nothing says “summer” like a good pasta salad.
