This recipe may be the most simple BBQ recipe I’ve ever made! Everyone absolutely loved it and we all pigged out on it! While not the regular, traditional pasta salad, it is certainly a little bit healthier and just as tasty, if not more!
Country Pasta Toss Recipe
- 3 c rotini pasta
- 1 lb new potatoes, cut into wedges
- 1 lb baby carrots
- 2 c broccoli florets
- (peas or snow peas if desired)
- olive oil
- 2 1/2 tbsp parsley (dried or fresh)
- 2 tsp dill weed
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 4-8 oz chopped ham
A Tip & Some Other Sides
While you do not have to prepare it in advance, you absolutely can! In a fashion similar to our Broccoli Salad Surprise and Southern Macaroni Salad, this can be made in advance if you’d like. It only gets better with a night or two in the fridge
One difference though, you don’t have to worry about it at picnics or BBQ’s quite as much since there is no mayo! Of course, that does not mean let it sit out for hours but I don’t have to tell you that!
Drinks that Go Perfectly!
You may also love our Almost Fresh Lemonade! It tastes almost exactly like fresh squeezed lemonade! If you aren’t a lemonade fan, you may love this Mock Sonic Strawberry Limeade recipe! That particular recipe is one of my favorites, plus it’s way less sugar and calories than those in the actual Sonic limeade!
