This is a really quick and easy pasta salad. Great for picnics and BBQ's.
Cucumbers and olives are tossed with cubes of Monterey Jack cheese and salad seasoning to make the base for this easy pasta salad. Add cooked pasta and toss with Italian dressing. Chill before serving to let the flavors meld.
Fresh vegetables and pasta with salami, pepperoni and tasty artichoke hearts make for a beautiful, crowd pleasing Summer dish.
This recipe is the best! I do a couple things differently. I don't like onions so I leave the onions out, I use a zesty Italian dressing, and for an added kick I add Johnny's Salad Elegance Seasoning. I have yet to have anyone complain!!
excellent and so easy! made it for a potluck and it was a hit!
I don't know why I tried this recipe because it's lacks two of my favorite pasta salad ingredients: celery and shredded carrots. However, it was really great. I made a homemade creamy italian dressing (the one from this site with onion, may, italian herbs, salt, pepper, vinegar and sugar). I never buy bottled dressings anymore. They're so easy and so cheap to make at home. I didn't have cucumbers like I thought I did and I did miss them. I used sliced green olives instead... They added extra briney zip that I would only recommend if you LIKE olives already. I'll be serving this for 4th of July. It already got rave reviews from my boyfriend, so its a keeper and great to work from. (One more thing: I used campanelle pasta, it's one of my favorite for pasta salads)
Use colorful corkscrew pasta to make a festive cold salad packed full of fresh tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, cucumbers, broccoli and mushrooms. Toss with your favorite Italian-style salad dressing and chill to let the flavors blossom before serving.
This is a recipe my mom came up with when we were snowed in. Serve it hot or cold. Use flavored feta to add some extra seasoning to your dish.
