Pasta Salad...

What's better in summer than a nice, fresh 
- Pasta Salad -
homemade, of course.
This one is super easy, and since my herb pot is overflowing with Dill,
I just had to make this one.

Morning Sunshine on the ingredients, it was early in the day when I put this together.

Fresh Dill from my garden.

I always soak the red onion in cold water, to take the sting out.

While your pasta cooks...

you have enough time to make your dressing...

and cut up all your vegetables.

Here it is finished, isn't it pretty and colorful.
It is a Family Circle Recipe - 
you can find it here.
The recipe calls for putting grilled chicken in it, but I have never done that.
I'm sure it would be good but I like it this way.
Of course, you could add or delete any vegetables and serve it as you like.
The fresh Dill is the star of the dish!!

I made some Deviled Eggs, we picked up some fresh white corn...

and this was dinner!
Perfect - on a hot summer day!


  1. Hello Dear Debbie!
    Your salad looks very appetizing.
    I like to eat food. I will prepare a salad for dinner according to your recipe.
    Kisses and greetings from Poland.
    Happy weekend :)

  2. Oh, how I lov pasta salad! And it seems to taste better in the summer :) I must say I have never added dill to my pasta salad, but will have to try that soon. Just last night I made Italian Wedding meatball soup and it had dill in it.....mmmm, it was yummy!

    Happy weekend! Hugs

  3. Oh, now I know what to have for lunch! Looks so good, Debbie! :)

  6. Great photos of a great looking salad!

  7. Oh my, those vegetables look delicious and your fresh garden dill amazing.

    All the best Jan

  8. What a brilliant idea! I'm hungry.Hubby cannot have mayo or eggs, but he isn't home! wait, we don't have any eggs!

  9. Oops. No peppers either... sigh.

  10. Oh I love pasta salad--salad of any kind. My "lil Sis makes a broccoli one that is luscious.
    Wimpy white corn again? I like the kind with the fat yellow kernels that get stuck in your teeth. LOL

  11. The final result looks tasty :-)

  12. Looks great... totally different then how I make mine. I use the color noodles, black olives, tomato, corn, peas, carrots and mayo and Italian dressing, salt and pepper, oregano, basil and what ever else I decide to throw in at the time! haha....I would love to try yours but I wold have to take the green bell pepper not like.

  13. Totally perfect on a HOT day, I have been doing way too much cooking lately.

  14. Oh my goodness, that looks DELICIOUS and yep, perfect for these sweaty hot summer days! I want to come eat at YOUR HOUSE! I don't know, something about summer lately, I just don't feel like cooking much at all. We've been eating out alot and I know it's not the healthiest but it sure is quick and easy. We pick up our supper and go sit by the water and watch the ships come and go!

  15. This meal does look perfect for a summer dinner. What a scrumptious looking salad. Thanks for all the awesome photos of the ingredients and for the link to the dressing recipe. This is one I will want to try! The corn and deviled eggs looks yummy too.
    Blessings and hugs!

  16. I was thinking the same thing...awesome on a hot day!

  17. Ooh la la, this is a perfect summer treat!

  18. YUM!
    And what a perfect summertime dinner this is.
