“The” Pasta Salad of All Pasta Salads

By: The CgC Daily Team

Pasta salad has always been a staple in everyone’s dining table, but here at the CgC Daily office, we like to give it a healthy twist by adding fresh tomatoes and blanched asparagus. This dish is super quick and easy to prepare and guaranteed to be a hit whether you are serving it at a party or as a side dish on your next family dinner. It’s also great for those that are challenged in the… umm… Kitchen arena shall we call it!
