Best Pasta Salad or other COLD side? (Camping)

natalie81 | Jun 29, 201904:26 AM     14

Hello! My family and I are going camping next week with two other families for 4th of July. We signed up to provide dinner the first night. We are going to bring marinated flank steak and hot dogs as the main. I am at a loss as to what to bring for a side with it. We will be leaving at 9am and not eating until dinner time, so it needs to be able to hang out in a cooler. Very little prep would be best. I was thinking a pasta salad would work great for this, but I haven't hit upon a recipe that seems right. We will have 6 adults and 5 kids with no dietary restrictions.

There will also be chips and s'mores and other fun 4th of July type food available.

Thanks!
