Sunny Broccoli Pasta Salad

This is a Pillsbury recipe from  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.
