15 Cold Pasta Salad Recipes You Will Love

Are you planning an outdoor celebration this summer? Or maybe you are running out of meal ideas during this hot weather. If that’s the case, serving hot foods should be last on your list if you don’t want you or your guests to sweat in the heat. Instead, I recommend making a pasta salad! Pasta salad is a cold salad composed of one or more types of pasta and frequently tossed in a vinegar, oil, or mayonnaise-based dressing. It is often served as an appetizer, a side dish, or as a main course.

With that in mind, here are 15 easy cold pasta salad recipes you will definitely love!
