{eating} caprese pasta salad

While summer is not my favorite season, it does have the best produce, so I’m soaking it up while I can. Tomatoes are delicious right now, so I made a caprese pasta salad over the weekend. We had friends and family over for a barbecue, and I wanted a light, fresh side to balance the pork and ribs that Aaron smoked.

I followed a simple recipe I’ve been making for years from Iowa Girl Eats. I did leave out the arugula, only because I wasn’t sure if everyone would like it. Also, since I use regular pasta (she calls for gluten free because she is a GF blogger), it lasts for a few days in the fridge without getting soggy.

Our basil plant actually grew this year, so between that and the constant supply of tomatoes in my house since Violet LOVES them, a caprese salad may have to happen at least once more before fall.

What is your go-to summer side dish?
