Although I love traditional holiday meals, you’ve definitely heard me mention that my family has been expanding our menus the last several years as we manage a large crowd and kid’s appetites. Christmas dinner has morphed into a seasonal tamale tradition (especially funny since we didn’t grow up making tamales and personally crafted a CA hippie chicken broth/olive oil version) and Easter dinner has shifted from ham and pasta salad to enchiladas. (Easter enchiladas are TOTALLY a thing. Just go with it.) Overall, I LOVE the new food tradition of… non-traditional food, but there are absolutely aspects of the meals that I miss. The good news is, I’m equal opportunity and I don’t feel like you need to wait to make ANYTHING. If you want, that’s a good enough reason.
And here’s what I’ve been missing these days: the yummy pasta salad that was my contribution to Easter dinner. Since I already said wanting something was a good enough reason to make it I dusted off my old recipe, polished up a few of the ingredients, and created this Mediterranean Pasta Salad with Homemade Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette. Since this recipe is in partnership with Bertolli, you can count on robust flavors and the fact that this recipe is simple. Perfect for your next holiday gathering OR delicious craving.
