Pasta Salad

FavoriteLoadingAdd to Recipe Box

This is my daughter’s version of Pasta Salad. The nice thing about it is that you can use ingredients that you have on hand. I also like the dressing she creates.

  • 2 cups of Pasta (we like Rotini curly and colored but any short twisted Pasta will work)
  • 1 cup Corn Niblets – canned or fresh cooked
  • 1 cup Carrots
  • 1 cup Celery
  • 1 cup Peppers

Cook the pasta. Cut vegetables to bite size. Mix chilled pasta and vegetables together.


  • 1Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • Pinch of Sugar

Mix all the ingredients together and pour over vegetables. It should stand at least 2 hours but is even better if made the day before.
* You can add an avocado just before serving.
