Supreme Pasta Salad

"An Italian pasta salad with meat, cheese, veggies. Try switching out different ingredients, I usually use what I have on hand, so the recipe changes a bit, but this is my favorite version. I like it better when the veggies are chopped small. It takes a long time to chop up the veggies, so sometimes I like to throw them in the food processor and pulse them a few times. Enjoy!"

directions

  • Mix salad dressing with seasoning.
  • Place pasta, vegetables, cheese and meat in large salad bowl. Add dressing and seasoning; toss gently to coat.
  • Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours or until ready to serve. (I ALWAYS refrigerate overnight-its better the next day.) Toss before serving.
  • (For the pasta, I cook to al dente, and rinse thoroughly with cold water to chill.).

Questions & Replies

  1. Do you really mean to use 1/4 cup of McCormick Salad Supreme Seasoning in the Salad Supreme Pasta Salad recipe? That sounds like a huge amount

  1. A big bowl of this in the fridge equals a happy summer!
     
  2. This is a great recipe. It's almost like the one my neighbor used to make. She always added radishes, broccoli, cauliflower and black olives so I added these to this recipe. I always used a half a can of diced tomatoes in place of the cherry tomatoes since this is what I had on hand. I also added some smoked gouda cheese since I needed to use what I had left up. Made this to share with my friends at the lake. I am very sure everyone will love this cause I know I do :) Thank You for sharing the recipe!
