Summer Pesto Pasta Salad

I love cooking, and I especially love cooking during the summer months. Something about the plentiful fruits and veggies, helps create a palette of delectable tastes that can be combined in a multitude of ways. What is also great about cooking in the summer is that with the heat, appetites seems to crave refreshing and light tasting fares, so those fresh fruits and veggies really lend themselves to that very idea.

Two of my very favorite dishes in the summer are grilled chicken and pasta salad. Not only can they compliment one another really well, but they also can be done in so many ways that you won’t get tired of serving them. They are versatile as well, serving as a side or even as your main dish. One of my favorite ways to serve these up, is through a pesto pasta salad. It’s easy, it’s quick, and tastes amazing. Enjoy!

While I made mine with diced grilled chicken, I left it out of the recipe above for a more vegetarian friendly version.
