One of my favourite summertime memories is having dinner with my family out on the back patio in the residual heat of the day. My mom would fire up the BBQ as my sister and I prepped the table and side dishes, played with our dog and awaited a delicious meal.
This backyard dinner was often comprised of salmon or homemade hamburgers, grilled vegetables, fresh tomatoes and basil from our garden and a hearty bean salad.
Flash forward to apartment living and no backyard to BBQ in, I still feel very nostalgic whenever I throw a bean salad together.
This recipe has a bit of a different take as it combines a bean and pasta salad to cover all the bases. So whether you are enjoying the back patio with family, meal prepping for one in a stuffy apartment or spending an afternoon on the beach with friends, we hope this salad will be part of some happy and tasty memories.
