What’s better than delicious tasting salads during the summer season, besides the highly popular cream cheese lemonade pie recipe! ;) Here’s a great pasta bean salad which is super yummy! This recipe is called Dawn’s Pasta Bean Salad, and as you may have previously read in my other post, Dawn is a co-worker who generously has been sharing her wonderfully, delicious recipes with me! I love making my friend’s favorites recipes!
The marinade on this salad is absolutely amazing! Such great flavor! I am a sucker for anything pasta, and Dawn has actually made this “bean salad” and then added the pasta to make it especially delicious! What a great addition! Just look at these pics!
The different colors in a great tasting salad just make you want to gobble it down! This is a very colorful salad and the variety of flavors make it all the more satisfying! So gobble away my friends!
