Baby, it’s hot outside – cool down with sun-dried tomato and tuna pasta salad


Here in Minnesota,  we are not used to heat like this.  Usually, while other parts of the country are sweltering,  we get warm and head for the lake.  We are starting our second week of oppressive heat,  with high humidity and high heat indices, well above normal.

This pasta salad is just the ticket to cool down and not use the oven…because using the oven heats the house something fierce.
