Linguine Salad

Linguine salad was one of my mom’s summertime favorites. I’m not sure exactly when she started making it or where she acquired the recipe. I do know she loved to make it to use some of the many vegetables my parents grew in their garden. She also loved having family and friends to the farm for a picnic or cookout. Among the many dishes of food she would serve, you could usually find linguine salad.

Linguine salad does not contain anything that spoils easily, thus it makes a great picnic/cookout dish. Plus, it is super easy to make.
