Grandmas Pasta Salad

One of our favourite go to recipes is the pasta salad that my mother in law makes. I’m only slightly addicted to collecting recipes and my favourite ones are always the ones from family members.

I can pretty much guarantee that each time we serve it, we get rave reviews and at least one person asks for the recipe. And usually the pasta salad will get served at a potluck shortly after we hand out the recipe!

Check out the recipe, and if you make it – let me know what you think!
