Acini Di Pepe Salad

Acini Di Pepe Salad

I love salads that are simple to make, and something that the kids love! This Acini Di Pepe Salad is a family tradition to make around the holidays. We actually call it “Frog-Eye Salad” because of the round pasta. I was going to post this recipe sooner, but I had so many great recipes I’ve wanted to share with you over the past month. I hope you enjoy trying out this recipe!
