This time of year, with camping, picnics, and barbeques to attend it is a good idea to have a “go to” pasta salad recipe in your recipe box. I like this recipe because it makes a large quantity and is cold. Perfect for a hot summer day. The recipe can be adjusted it to meet your family’s personal preferences. An added bonus is you don’t have to have a lot of spices on hand since you use McCormick’s Salad Supreme.
You can use any raw vegetables your family likes and add meat, cheese, or pickled peppers. You can use shaped noodles or spaghetti. Any brand of Italian dressing you have in your refrigerator will work. The only ingredient you can’t change is McCormick’s Salad Supreme Seasoning. This recipe is from Charlotte Young.
Supreme Pasta Salad
1 pound dry rotini
4 tablespoons McCormick’s Salad Supreme Seasoning
1 cup Italian Dressing
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1/2 red pepper chopped
1/2 cup sliced carrots
1/2 cup sliced black olives
1/2 cup broccoli florets
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup sliced pepperoncini peppers
Sliced green onions, optional
Mix all ingredients together. Refrigerate overnight for dressing to soak in, and McCormick’s seasoning to flavor pasta. Serve cold. Makes 11 cups.
