Summer Pasta Salad

Pasta salad is a chilled salad made with cooked and cooled pasta, tossed in a dressing with a variety of other ingredients. Summer Spaghetti is classically a summer food, usually served as an appetizer or side dish, although it can also be eaten as a main course.

It should be kept chilled. Some people like to allow the pasta to warm a little before serving, to allow the flavours to come out more, in which case any leftovers should be discarded and not refrigerated.
