Summer just screams things like barbecue to me. I don’t know if it’s living in Texas or just the warm weather. And with barbecue comes all the tasty side dishes. I dream about some of the homemade potato salad I’ve had in the past. Nothing can be a good potato or pasta salad.

Krista from Everyday Mom’s Meals has adapted a great recipe from Lady Behind the Curtain. Black Eyed Pea Pasta Salad just sounds like a refreshing take on the pasta salads I have seen so many times before. It’s a great addition to any summer menu!

    This sounds amazing! It may have to be the recipe I cook ahead to have on-hand for easy lunches this week. I’ll just throw a scoop or two on a bed of lettuce and voila easy, healthy lunch!
