Recipe by NcMysteryShopper

This recipe was designed with children in mind, for parties, potlucks and picnics. You can add other veggies to the salad that your child/ren enjoys. This is a great side dish for a themed “Under the Sea” or pool party. Pasta shells, crunch veggies and cheese cut into star or fish shapes create a side dish loved by backyard sailors.
