Kittencal's Creamy Egg Dressing for Pasta Salad

"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"

  1. 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!
  2. 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.
