We finally had a beautiful spring weekend in Minnesota. It was in the mid 70’s and absolutely amazing. Erik golfed Saturday so I planned a picnic at a nearby park with my family. It was pretty impromptu but I had a bunch of ingredients to make a tasty pasta salad. We also had sandwiches, chips, cupcakes, veggies and hummus and fruit. I also packed a Smirnoff Ice Peach Bellini for my mom and I…who doesn’t like a little bubbly with their picnic?
Picnics are one of my favorite spring and summertime activities. We spent hours outside, it was just what we needed after a very long winter.
This pasta salad was really tasty. Erik loved it, too. It’s a great salad to bring to a picnic or any potluck.
