So. I have a potluck to attend in a few days, and I'd like to make a pasta salad. I've checked the memories and tagged entries but I'm not sure which recipes are the most tried and true. There will be people there of every sort of eating niche, from vegans to hardcore meat eaters. This will be an arty/open/funky kind of crowd, so I'm not too concerned about pleasing people with chicken finger tastes.
But I do really want to wow people over. Especially the hot guy who is coming. Yum.
Does anyone have a really kick ass totally mean recipe for pasta salad?
Also, does anyone have any other knockout potluck ideas? I mean, really knockout ideas. I want to really wow these people. I think I said that all ready. Haha. Only stipulations: it needs to be a cold item, i.e. something I can make the night before and then grab it out of the fridge before heading to the party the following day. It also needs to be relatively cheap.
