  1. Picnics are totally one of the best parts of summer! Loving this edamame hummus idea too. I used to buy an edamame hummus from TJ’s that I loved but they stopped selling it, so I have been wanting to experiment with making my own. This one looks incredible!

    1. Hi Mary! Which recipe are you referring to? All of the pasta salads can be served warm, chilled or at room temp, as none of them are mayonnaise-based.
