Pair with a Pale Ale
I don’t think the perfect picnic exists without the perfect accompaniments. Oh sure, BBQ chicken legs, savory cheeseburgers, and chili cheese dogs are always the stars of the show, but a picnic wouldn’t be a picnic without the side dishes.
I’m going to keep things short and sweet today because well, it’s Friday and all, but I couldn’t sail off without praising this summer vegetable pasta salad first.
I love everything about this pasta salad, and it has become a staple around our house this past spring. I normally throw anything I have on hand in the salad. It makes it so versatile. Any vegetable, fruit, and protein can be added to this pasta salad and it would be delicious. Trust me on this. While I decided to throw chicken into the mix, if you are living a vegetarian life, feel free to leave it out.
That’s what makes this salad so perfect. Add anything you want to it! What really sends this pasta salad over the edge however, is the dressing. The dressing is by far my favorite part, and a good pasta salad wouldn’t be a good pasta salad without a good dressing.
I hope you guys enjoy this recipe as much as I enjoyed creating it for you! Pair it with a pale ale. If you can find a pale ale more on the citrusy side, that will work best. Surprisingly, the hoppiness from a pale ale pairs really well with the fresh fruits veggies! Have a great weekend, friends!
