I have never made a pasta salad before. I actually love eating pasta salad, but every time I think about making it myself, it just seems wrong, because when I cook pasta, it just seems like it should be eaten warm. Preferably with Alfredo sauce. But apparently when someone else makes it, it’s okay, because deli pasta salads and church potluck pasta salads and baby shower pasta salads are all amazing.
