Cool Cucumber Pasta Salad

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 12 mins

This is a great summer salad that tastes super with any grilled meat. The longer it marinates the better! The ingredient are things I normally have in the house so it's easy to whip together. It from a '97 TOH and it has become a favorite at this house. The cooking time listed would be cooking the pasta. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

A really good alternative to regular pasta salad. Only change I will make next time is to make it a little less sweet. My nephew loved it just the way it is, but majority rules in our house, and the rest of us like it just a little more tart.

This is really good and simple. Great salad for picnics, no mayo. I used macaroni because that's what I had on hand. This would be good with tomatoes and or green peppers added as well. Thanks for the great recipe.

This was very good! I used 3/4 cup sugar, and 1/2 cup vinegar and 3/4 cup water. I also added green peas that were frozen. I will make this again, for sure! Thanks so much.
