Pasta salads are very popular in our family. Very. Especially summer time. As a mom I love them because I get to include a lot of healthy veggies and other nutritional foods. We have made a lot of different pasta salads through the years and I discovered few things that can help you make a successful (and by successful I mean empty salad bowl) pasta salad that your kids and the whole family will love.
- Presentation is important. Place the pasta salad in odd container, such as sand bucket or a chinese to go box or put pasta salad on the skewers.
- Make it colorful. This can work to your advantage by adding a lot of different colorful veggies..
- Give it silly name. Like a “Turtle salad” or “Ratatouille salad”.
