Pasta Salad instructions
- Boil pasta according to directions and drain then run cold water over pasta to cool, drain again and set aside.
- Put together entire ingredients into large mixing bowl (except the pasta and bottle dressing) turning to mix.
- Add pasta and bottle dressing and turn in bowl with spatula until evenly coated, I also add some juice from the pepper jar.
- Cover and place in fridge…at least 2-3 hours to marry the flavors Overnight is better.
- After taking out of fridge, give it a toss and serve !! 😋.
- I like to add a little grated parmesan or feta cheese on top maybe some sunflower seeds or bacon bits but that is completely optional ENJOY !!.
- Double this recipe for several people 😋😋😋😋😋😋.
