At the last minute, I was told to bring something for a potluck at work. Not having the time to go shopping, I used whatever I had on hand and used a dressing my mother always used on her potato salad. The salad was a hit at work. Takes a little time to make but is well worth the effort.

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; cook the rotini at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes; drain. Rinse with cold water until completely cooled; drain.
  2. Mix pasta, eggs, artichoke hearts, celery, bell pepper, onion, ham, shrimp, peas, Cheddar cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, pickle, and olive together in a large bowl.
  3. Whisk sour cream, mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, sugar, ranch dressing mix, mustard, and hot pepper sauce together in a separate bowl; season with salt and black pepper.
  4. Drizzle dressing over salad and toss to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator 3 hours to overnight. Stir enough of the reserved artichoke marinade into the salad so it is just moistened before serving.

This was a nice pasta salad. I skipped the olives and artichokes per personal preference, and the eggs because I'm lazy ;) I thought it might pack a bit more of a punch given the dressing ingredients, but nothing really made it stand out from the usual pasta salad fare. It's a nice pasta salad, for sure, but not one I can say for sure I'd make again (though it's certainly worth YOU giving it a try; it's good stuff!). THANKS for the recipe!
