Pasta Salad a la Honeybear

Pasta Salad a la Honeybear

Beverly Burton 6

"This is my take on several different pasta salads I have tried. It's my daughter's favorite and I have taken it to several picnics and BBQs and it's always a bit hit. At serving time if pasta seems a little dry, drizzle with some olive oil and mix again."

Um, YUM!!! I did not have salami, I used turkey pepperoni instead (I know, I know.....pepperoni is NOT salami but hey, you go with what you have on hand, right?). I also doubled the italian seasoning, doubled the amount of mayonnaise/italian dressing and the mayonnaise I used was reduced fat. This salad was off the HOOK. I think the only thing we were missing in this salad was chopped fresh roma tomatoes but really, even then we were too busy stuffing our faces with it to care. To say we loved it--HUGE understatement.


We LOVED this! I did need to use more Italian dressing than called for, a little less Italian seasoning (personal preference) and used tri-colored wheels instead of rotini (per my little guy), but those were my only changes. All of the ingredients went together very well, and I liked the addition of the mayo in this. I will be making this again and again! Thanks for sharing. :)


So good!!! Used rotini pasta instead. Made 4 times in just last few weeks!!! No onion after the first batch. Great side dish ..everyone loves it!
