Pasta Salad Recipe
Pasta salad is one of my favorite foods to make. It is very simple to make and can be eaten as a side dish, snack or meal. There are so many variations making it fun and different each time.
2 cups pasta (fusili, macaroni or penne)
1 1/2 cups fresh julienned vegetables of your choice (peppers, carrots, cucumber, chopped celery)
1/4 cup minced onion
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup of your favorite salad dressing
1 tbsp. mustard
1 tbsp. vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
1 can of tuna (optional)
Boil and drain pasta.
Allow the pasta to cool while preparing the vegetables.
In a large bowl, mix all of the ingredients together.
Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to 2 days.
