Mediterranean Pasta Salad for a Crowd

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by SuperSpike

A pasta salad loaded with veggies, great to take for a potluck or to serve at a big BBQ. Best to prepare a day ahead of time so it has time to absorb all the flavors

A great recipe....we left out the mushrooms and used a green pepper instead of yellow and asiago cheese instead of parmesan

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil pasta in salted water until al dente.
  2. Prepare vegetables as listed.
  3. Drain and rinse all canned items.
  4. Combine pasta, cheese, canned items, and fresh vegetables in a very large mixing bowl.
  5. Add 3/4 of the bottle of salad dressing ( I use Bernstein's Restaurant Recipe Italian) and stir to combine.
  6. Add parsley for extra color, add a splash of red wine vinegar (optional) to "brighten" the flavor.
  7. The next day, add the remaining salad dressing before serving, and stir thoroughly.
