I had the opportunity to be on Good Things Utah again and I had a blast. The second time was so much easier than the first time. I had almost zero nerves this time and was able to just relax and be myself. You can click here for the link to the show. I decided for this segment that I was going to make my famous pasta salad. This is my go to dish when it comes to summer barbecues and potlucks. It is a definite crowd pleaser and there are rarely ever left overs.
There are several versions of this pasta salad out there but I think mine is the very best. It is simple done right. This pasta salad comes together so fast and it always blows people away. The brown sugar in the dressing makes it sweet while the large amount of salt and pepper balance out the sweetness with the perfect amount of savory.
Tips & Tricks:
- You can easily half this recipe. The full recipe makes A LOT of pasta salad. I make the full batch if I am making it for a party, it I am making it just for my small family, I will half the recipe.
- You can omit the green onions if you are not a fan, but they really do add a lot of flavor. My mother in law who hates onions still loves this salad and doesn’t mind the green onions at all.
- Fresh lemon juice is best, the kind in the bottle doesn’t taste the same at all so please use fresh when possible.
