This recipe can be played with. You can use all, or just a few of the vegetables. Choice of pasta goes the same. I even tried it with tortollini and it was delicious. I just suggest that you DO NOT SUBSTITUTE ON THE DRESSING AND SALAD SEASONING. I have given out this recipe before and have to stress that since many did not use those. Using an assortment of peppers is great for the color.
Scrumptious-tasting cooking contest winner! This recipe was submitted by Louise Dodd. I found this this recipe in Salads Food Writers' Favorites. I have not tried this recipe, but I'm posting it for safe keeping.
I found this recipe in a Quick Cooking cook book and revised it just a little to suit my family's taste. Hope you enjoy. Cook time is mostly chill time. It needs to be in the fridge long enough to chill completely. I do like to make mine the day before I intend to serve.
Found this recipe on another site, my compliments to Dot. This is a fabulous recipe. Quick and easy. Its good the same day but, make a least a day ahead, up two weeks ahead it's flavor only gets better.It does stays crunchy. People that don't eat coleslaw like this one. Prep time does not include time to marinade. If you use the packaged shredded cabbage it only takes 5 minutes.
I always make this salad for winter holiday gatherings. It comes from "Quick Cooking" magazine. The salad is beautiful and incredibly yummy! There is always way too much dressing so I usually double or triple the salad amount depending on the crowd.
My family would rather have their potato salad made this way than any other and it's so easy I sure don't mind. I can't remember where I learned this but I've been doing it this way for years. No peeling, chopping, boiling, etc. Except for the potatoes I'm just making a guess on the amounts listed. I never measure but I had to put in something to get the recipe posted.
