simple summer pasta salad

Things that I don’t like: hot ovens for lunch or dinner during summer, olives, and complaints about dinner being late.  That’s why this pasta salad will be my friend until late September as the temps soar. I don’t include olives because they aren’t a fave of mine or the kids, but when I am making for someone else who loves them they are a nice addition.
