What side dish can you bring for a summer BBQ?
Need a 21 day FIX approved Pasta salad?
Here it is!
This weekend I hosted a small BBQ/pool party at my house. I was craving a pasta salad that my mother used to make ALL THE TIME!!! It was a summer staple. But, it wasn’t necessarily 21 day FIX approved. So, I worked my magic and modified it! And, I was pleasantly surprised. It was absolutely delicious!!! And my kids loved it too!
So simple to make!
3/4 – 1 pound whole wheat pasta – cooked and chilled
1 can of diced tomatoes
1/2 cup of Plain Greek Yogurt
5 leaves of FRESH BASIL
2 stalks of celery, optional
After you cook, drain and chill the pasta put this in a bowl and put aside. In your blender combine the rest of the ingredients. I used my single serve Ninja blender. Blend all of the ingredients into a sauce. It will be very runny. Simply pour over the pasta salad, and fold it together. Mix in chopped celery for an added crunch if you wish. Serve cold!
Refrigerates and stores nicely for a few days too!
