Leafy green salads are hard to keep fresh when you're eating outdoors, especially when it's hot. And that's what you want to eat when it's hot. Enter the pasta salad. This fusion of two separate dishes, drenched with oil and vinegar dressings, does the trick. Savor the flavors of one of the Big Easy's most iconic sandwiches, the muffaletta — without the typical soft sesame Italian bread.
