  1. In a large pan cook pasta in boiling water until tender; rinse under cold water and drain.

Pour dressing over mixture; toss until evenly coated. Chill until ready to serve.
Tips & Tricks


  • Variation:
  • For another texture and flavor add 3/4 cup of shredded Mozzarella cheese before adding the dressing.
  • Tip:
  • To seed a cucumber, first halve it lengthwise. Use the tip of a spoon to scrape the seeds from each half. If you have a grapefruit spoon, you will find that the sharp tip works well for this task.

Very versatile recipe. If you don't have something, then leave it out. If you have something the recipe doesn't call for, then add it. I recommend chopping the carrots really small, I think it's weird when you get a big crunchy carrot next to a soft noodle, but when the carrots are small the texture is just right.


I made this salad a couple of weeks ago to "test" it for our daughter's graduation party. I'm making it tomorrow for her party - absolutely wonderful. I added some pepperoni chunks, garlic and sliced black olives. This recipe did well to sit for about 8 hours before eating - would suggest eating it within 24 hours as all the ingredients tasted the same the next day. Really good salad - can't wait to have it again tomorrow!


This salad is really great. I followed it to a "T" except I misread the "Red Gold Basil, etc." and put in Rotel tomatoes with Green Chilis. It turned out fabulous. Everyone actually liked the bite the green chilis gave it. Who knew? I will try it the "right way" and see the difference.
