Warm weather is here! With that comes all the barbecues, cookouts and grilling! I love a light, fresh salad for Spring and Summer, whether it's as an appetizer, side dish, or as the main course. Save-A-Lot stores have a wide selection of fresh, delicious ingredients to inspire a variety of salads.
Today we're sharing a perfect summer pasta salad!
One of the things I look for in a salad for the warm weather is that it's able to actually sit outside. This pasta salad contains no mayonnaise, sour cream, or yogurt.
I really love the amazing prices at Save-A-Lot. We're able to stock up on great fresh fruit and vegetables without blowing the budget.

Look how pretty those veggies are getting ready to go in the oven! This just says summer salad to me!
Bacon and Pasta! Woohoo! Both have seem to have increased in prices lately, but not at Save-A-Lot! The bacon was 2/$5! Of course, prices may vary at your location, but I'm sure it's still a great deal!
We enjoyed our summer pasta salad with a steak and crescent rolls for dinner, but I would gladly eat it alone for lunch. Between the bacon, veggies, and pasta, it's definitely able to stand as a meal. It will make a great dish to bring along to all those summer parties coming up!
