Pasta Salad I

Pasta Salad I


"Yummy vegetable pasta salad featuring fresh vegetables and a light dressing. This salad is great served with bar-b-q chicken or burgers and garlic toast. If I'm serving this salad to seniors, I usually par-boil the vegetables in the microwave for 3-4 minutes, just until tender."

This has a great tasting dressing! I didn't add quite as many veggies as the recipe but it was still good. I'm not even a fan of pasta salads but have made it 3 times in 2 weeks. Thanks Sylvia

Love the dressing in this. I used Hellman's Just 2 Good mayo and varied the veggies for what I had on hand --was great!

This is a good base recipe, but I found the dressing way too sweet. It was much better with 1/2 the sugar plus garlic and herbs.

This is a wonderful conbination of ingredients. However, it calls for too much pasta. Uncooked pasta expands double, or more, when cooked. Six cups pasta, plus all the vegetables, certainly wo...

Very good pasta salad. The only changes that I make are adding black olives and using fat-free Italian for the dressing. I used tri-color pasta.

I would probably reduce the sugar next time a bit in the dressing, but overall, very good! Thanks!

I love this, made it exactly to specs. Even better if you put it in the fridge overnight so the pasta can absorb some dressing.

This salad is a favorite. Thanks
