This is a Pillsbury recipe from http://www.pillsbury.com. It’s just like regular broccoli salad with pasta added, tasty! Gotta use up that broccoli and cauliflower from the Bountiful Basket.
1/2 cup light mayonnaise or salad dressing
1/3 cup milk
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 oz (1 1/2 cups) uncooked pasta (radiatore) (I used rotini)
8 slices bacon
2 cups small broccoli florets
1 cup small cauliflower florets
1/4 cup red onion
1/4 cup golden raisins (left these out)
3 tablespoons shelled sunflower seeds
1 In small bowl, combine dressing ingredients and blend with whisk until smooth. Refrigerate while preparing rest of salad.
2 Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water.
3 Cook bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels and then crumble.
4 In large bowl, combine all salad ingredients. Pour dressing over salad and toss gently to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes to blend flavors.
