Pasta salad is just one of those dishes that can be made many different ways, depending on the preferences of your camping family. If you are searching for ways to make it extra delicious you should try a version that we’ll share here.
Eliminate Heavy Dressings
Many recipes call for adding heavy dressing and mayonnaise when creating pasta salad, but that could make things fairly dense, which is the complete opposite of what summer food needs to be. The simplest way to make things less heavy is always to use something lighter to bind the salad. Great choices include oil and vinegar, Italian dressing or a little bit of citrus juice blended with herbs. Be sure to have extra on hand because pasta tends to absorb the liquids you mix them with and you may want to add more dressing just before you serve.
The simplest way to make your salad great for summer is to add a myriad of vegetables. There are many out there, but using the ones that are seasonal can make things brighter and more delicious than ever. Summer veggies include eggplant, cucumbers, zucchini, sweet corn, red, green, and yellow peppers, and avocado.
Put In A Little Fruit
A very nice method to spruce things up is to consider adding a little bit of fruit as an alternative to depending on vegetables for making your pasta salad pop. Mandarin oranges, watermelon, strawberries, peaches and sliced plums are a couple of ideas you should consider increasing the combination. If you want to keep the sweetness balanced you can do so by adding feta or blue cheese. It will bring your pasta salad to life and make it second-helping worthy.
