Pasta Salad Recipe:


Shaped, colored, tubular, flavoured, lots to choose from. I like to buy a bag of mixed as it adds a nice colourful look to the dish.


Anything goes here, whatever your tastebuds desire. The popular ones being...

Onions-any kind
Tomatoes-small cherry
Peppers-green, red, yellow, orange, jalepeno


Parmesan cheese
Salt Pepper, Spices


You can add your favorite bottled dressing or make one from scratch. Here are 2 basic ones:


1 cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp. wine or cider vinegar
1 clove crushed garlic
1 tsp. basil
salt and pepper to taste

You can substitute yogurt for mayonnaise or mix mayo and yogurt together for your dressing base.

Lemon juice can be used in place of vinegar.


1/4 cup salad oil
3 tbsp. vinegar-balsamic,wine, cider etc.
1 clove crushed garlic
1 tsp basil and/or oregano
Salt and Pepper to taste

Boil your pasta noodles for about 10 minutes or until cooked. Drain and rinse in cold water, and let cool.

While noddles are cooling, chop up any vegatables you are adding, and make dressing.

Once cool, add all other ingredients you have chosen from the above list, adding the dressing last.

Cool in the refrigerator for about 2 hours before serving.
