Nothing says Summer better.....

One of my favorite things to eat in the dog days of summer is cold pasta salad....
throw a little chicken on the grill or some burgers and wow! quick and easy dinner.
I like to use penne but... no rules here, use whatever you want.... add a can of sliced black olives
and some chopped celery and red onion....I also toss in some chopped hard boiled eggs....
 whip up the dressing in a separate bowl... I don't really measure anything I just kind of guesstimate here
depending on how much of the other ingredients I used...  I like the olive oil mayo,a couple 3 tablespoons of milk and cider vinegar,salt and lots of pepper. Whip it all up and toss with the pasta and veggies, if you don't have enough... make some more. Chill for a couple of hours so that all the flavors have a chance to get to know each other.
and voila! It has to be said..... "yummo"!
