Healthy Summer Pasta Salads

It’s a holiday and you’ve got so much delicious food ready to share with everyone – why not make sure that traditional pasta salad is a healthy one!  If you’re a regular reader you know that I’m always trying to convince others that mayo and calorie-laden dressings is not the way to go with salads.  You’ve got all those healthy ingredients why would you want to cover up their flavors when you could enhance them?  Here are some great suggestions from healthy bloggers for your summer festivities.  Enjoy!
