Foodie Friday

Friday, May 29, 2009

My friend Kristen is a fabulous cook. While visiting her in Indiana recently she made this delicious pasta salad for lunch. The dressing is what makes it so divine. I couldn't get enough of it and found myself rummaging through her fridge for a midnight snack and was thrilled to discover some leftovers. (are you reading this Kristen?) I don't know about you, but I'm always searching for a good side dish to take to a BBQ or potluck. This is the perfect summer choice. Bon Appetit!
