A long time favorite in our household, this pasta salad recipe was originally given to me from our German friend Jutta H. (pronounced You-tuh). She introduced this summer salad to me when our kids (now in their 20’s) were little, during one of our many family dinners together when we were both young moms, living far away from our extended families. It has become an easy, and well liked, take-along dish for parties, cookouts and picnics. I have adapted it very little over the years except to add different veggies to it as I have on hand.
