Simple Summer Pasta Salad

Serves 6 ● 30 minutes

For me, nothing says summer like a homemade pasta salad. A Memorial Day weekend and Fourth of July staple, this easy, flavorful dish elicits cherished memories of the New Jersey sunshine, sand between my toes, and perfectly warm evenings shared with people I love. This dish is easy and effortless like the summer days of childhood, and incredibly versatile. Feel free to swap out any ingredients to suit your taste preference — grilled zucchini, cubed provolone cheese, and artichoke hearts are delicious alternatives or additions!

Got five minutes?  That’s all the time it takes to whip up this tasty dish.  Healthier than mayonnaise-based alternatives, this tangy and delightfully spiced tuna salad is eager to work its way into your lunch rotation.  Caught up in the morning rush?  Prepare the night before and store in tupperware to grab-and-go in the AM.  This tuna salad keeps for several hours in a refrigerated lunchbox and is delicious with whole wheat pita, a toasted sesame bagel, or atop a bed of mix greens!

Greek Salad Pita Pockets

Light and fresh, these pitas are perfect for an easy weeknight dinner or a weekend picnic lunch.  Breathe new life into leftovers by mixing previously cooked chicken breast, falafel or tofu with the Greek salad fillings, or prepare fresh.  Stuffing pita pockets is fun job for tiny hands!  Apolamváno! (Enjoy!)
