Lemony Pasta Salad with Grape Tomatoes and Feta

Lemony Pasta Salad with Grape Tomatoes and Feta

Whenever we have a cookout, I love to have multiple salads. Many salads can be made ahead and stored in the fridge allowing you to mingle with your guests instead of prepping dinner. This salad has a light, citrusy dressing that goes wonderfully with a the heavy meat flavors of a summertime barbecue.
