This is my favorite pasta salad that I concocted myself one day. The great thing about it is you can use any shape of pasta, any salad dressing you like and any vegetables that you like and/or have on hand.
I made this for the Father/Son’s Campout in a triple batch which is a whole lot of pasta salad! They are also eating 28 pounds of my pulled pork recipe and a triple batch of the Picnic Perfect Tuna and Macaroni Salad. I’m hoping for some leftovers!
1 pound pasta, any shape you like (I used the twirly elbow mac this time)
1/2 – 3/4 bottle salad dressing, any flavor you like (I usually use Kraft Zesty Italian)
any combo of chopped up veggies you like such as radishes, cucumbers, tomatoes, celery, carrots, broccoli, red or white or yellow or green onions, olives, whatever you like or have! (this time I used celery, cucumbers and radishes)
Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain, rinse and cool. Chop veggies and add to pasta. Pour dressing over pasta in desired quantity. Remember that the pasta will absorb some of the dressing so put a little more than you think you need. Refrigerate until ready to eat.
