Our Adventures In Cooking ~ Summer Pasta Salad

My wife has been making cold Summer Pasta Salads for years with any number of variations on the theme, based on what’s available and/or in season.  The Pasta Salad itself includes: Bow Tie Pasta (al dente), Diced Cooked Ham, Cooked Peas (blanched), Pineapple Tidbits, Diced Red Bell Peppers, and Diced Green Onions.  The dressing includes: Non-fat Plain Yogurt, Brown Mustard, Pickle Juice, Diced Pickles, Diced Hard Boiled Egg, Chopped Fresh Green Chives, Chopped Fresh Parsley, Fresh Ground Black Pepper, Salt, and Garlic Salt to taste.

Keep the pasta salad and dressing in separate containers in the refrigerator, mixing together before serving.  The pasta salad should easily last a few days in the refrigerator before serving if the dressing is kept separately, stretching the salad out over a number of days ~ enjoy! ☼ 🙂
