I love pasta salad. It just seems to be the perfect food for warm weather eating. It reminds me of picnics and block parties and all the other wonderful gatherings of summer. I found this recipe a few years ago and instantly fell in love. Barbecue pasta salad?!? Well, hello YUM! I have a couple other favorite pasta salad recipes but this is the one I like best when I'm making barbecue. What could go more perfectly with a big batch of tender smoked ribs or barbecued chicken. It might seem like barbecue flavor overload, but somehow, imho, it's absolutely perfect!
