Whether you're feeding a crowd or just overflowing with cucumbers, this easy pasta salad is the perfect dish to bring to a BBQ , picnic, or cookout.

This pasta salad doesn't have any mayo in it, so it can sit on the table for a couple of hours without worrying about the mayonnaise spoiling. It also makes the salad taste fresher and lighter.
