REDISCOVER PASTA SALADS for all your parties and picnics

PASTA SALADS  can be very boring but there are very simple tips to superb pasta salads that make them addictive. Check out all the different shapes and colors at Cucina Al Volo.  I asked them to bring new shapes that catch every bit of the vegetables and cheeses you add to your salads.  Here are the 12 tips to perfect pasta salads. with details and recipes.
  • Pick the right size and shapes
  • Don't skimp on salt
  • Drain but don't rinse
  • Dress right away
  • Dress brightly
  • Load up on our fresh, local vegetables
  • But cook those veggies
  • Vary the textures and flavors
  • Double up on the cheeses (unless you are Vegan).
  • Go Nutty
  • Pack a punch with capers, olives and other brinies
  • Taste and reseason just before serving
