I developed this dressing to use on any pasta or potato salad --- Club House Salads n' Dips Ranch Style dry mix will also work well --- all ingredients can be adjusted to taste --- prep time does not include boiling the eggs, this makes a ton of dressing you may reduce by half if desired --- you will also find this recipe here http://kittencalskitchen.com/2010/05/24/kittens-pasta-or-potato-salad-dressing-with-egg/

This pasta dressing is awesome!! I left out the eggs the second time I made it, I don't think the egg added to the taste. This dressing is worth making over and over!

This is a great recipe. I followed the recipe but all I added was about 1/4 teaspoon sugar. I made the recipe the night before and put a bit of dressing over the pasta then the next day I added more. I added ham,celery,peas,and a bit of red pepper and green onion. Rave reviews from the crowd of 35. I will be making this again Thank-you.
