Pasta, quinoa and edamame salad is probably my favorite. It’s one of those things I could eat any day, anytime. I love it because it’s flavorful, colorful and full of different textures. One of my son’s classmates organized a potluck, and I decided to prepare my favorite salad with the addition of pasta to boost the serving size. Plus, I figure most people like pasta salads. The dish was a hit! I hope it serves as inspiration for your next potluck event. MORE + LESS -
