This tasty and attractive salad was my contribution to our recent family reunion. I added a half pound each cubed Genoa Salami & cubed Provolone. Three packets of Ranch Dressing felt like too much, so I halved it to 1 1/2 packets. I put everything together the night before using 3/4s the total amount of dressing. The next day the salad was still nice & moist, so I left off the remaining portion of dressing. Thank you for sharing a great salad recipe!
This is a very pretty salad! Tastes great, too. I used angel hair pasta, but next time I will probably use the rotini for easier mixing. This also made a lot of dressing, which is fine with me since I like my pasta salad drenched!
THis was excellant!! I took it to a family get-together and everybody loved it:) I did cut back on the seasoning, only added 2 packets of ranch and didn't quite pour it all on. But it was very good, I loved the flavor of all the crisp veggies!
This was good, but not my favorite. I cut way down on the oil, and I still felt it was pretty oily. I thought it could have used more veggies in proportion to how much pasta there was. The flavor of the dressing was tasty, but I guess I was expecting to be like, "WOW!" when I tasted it--and that wasn't my reaction. I'm not sure if I will make this again, without some serious modifications.
This is THE BEST pasta salad I have ever eaten! I made mine with tri color spirals (12 oz), so I only used about 3/4 of the dressing. This is a new favorite! Thanks so much!
A nice variation on pasta salad--I heeded other reviews and didn't use all of the dressing at once. After marinating the required hours, it still didn't seem like it needed more dressing. We liked it!
As written, I felt this recipe was super strong in the seasoning department. I didn't even pour in the full amount and I still went back and rinsed about a 3rd of my pasta off. I would suggest halving the dressings (or if you're feeding an army, double everything else :) Once I'd made my adjustments, the pasta was good. I added cubed cheddar right before serving.
Tasty and colorful! I used the angel hair pasta, halved a pint of cherry tomatoes, omitted the green pepper because my yellow pepper was very large, used red onion and added 1/2 lb crumbled feta and sprinkled on about 3 Tbsp of McCormick Salad Supreme... added everything else the same as the recipe called for. I had a little bit of dressing left over that I didn't have to use; I felt the salad would've been too saturated in dressing if I used the entire amount called for in the recipe. I marinated the salad in about a little over half of the dressing overnight then added a small amount prior to serving. I will definitely make this again; I made this for a family picnic and it was enjoyed. I would like to try it with corkscrew/rotini pasta next time. Thanks for posting!
Great idea with the ranch dressing packets. Had a bit too much dressing for the amount of pasta, but I'll try it again for sure! Thanks.
I thought this was a 5 star recipe. DH thought that it had way too much oil. Next time I will cut back on the oil to make him happy. I made it to take to a family get together at my brothers house. Everyone told me that this was an excellent pasta dish. I used spiral pasta, not the tri color (thats what I had on hand) but I did use red, yellow and green peppers to add color. Thanks Shawn C for posting this recipe.
