It's sunny slash super warm outside, our deck remodel is DONE, and July 4th is in a week...it's outside grill time! Before we jump into the main dish (stay tuned), let's talk one of my favorite BBQ side dishes: summertime Greek pasta salad.
I do a lot of salads and smoothies in the summer because, well, heat. I'm absolutely NOT a hot weather person, not even in the slightest. Unless it's next to the pool or on a beach, preferably in Hawaii 💅🏻. A post quarantine, successful covid-19 vaccine dream I suppose.
Until then, I shall continue to enjoy the sun in spurts out on the deck and then running back inside where it's wonderfully chilly to cool off.
Point being, this summertime Greek pasta salad is pretty much a weekly occurrence around here. You still get to eat pasta, but it's chilled (WIN) with feta, olives, avocado, and tons of other good stuff.
A couple awesome things about this dish:
First, it only takes 20 minutes, and that includes cooking the pasta and veggie prep.
Second, it's vegetarian! A great option for a BBQ as a side dish for meat lovers and a main course for those not too keen on burgers or hot dogs.
