This recipe comes from my mom, its her go to pasta salad recipe. There are so many different pasta salads, but this one is my farmer's favorite that he always requests. My mom has been making it for years and I remember the first time my husband had it when we were dating. I think he may have first had it at a family reunion picnic. He loved this recipe immediately.

This pasta salad is packed with flavor and so easy to make. Super colorful and delicious too! We especially love it when we can pick produce fresh out of our garden and whip up this pasta salad to enjoy for a few days! With lots of growing in the garden, this recipe is an easy one for us to make. We can gather up the vegetables needed, prepare them, and make the pasta salad in time for the meal that day. We are busy on our farm planning our vegetable gardens and ordering seed, so its fun to think about the recipes we crave in the summer time!
