Tri-Color Pasta Salad

As summer is coming to an end, I thought I would share a family recipe for Tri-Color Pasta Salad.  You can eat this dish as a meal or a side dish.  It only takes about 15 minutes to prepare and is always a hit. You can add extra vegetables, cheese, or even pepperoni to make it your own.

This could be the perfect pasta salad for your Labor Day!

Ingredients

  • 12 oz box tricolor pasta
  • ½ cup black olives, sliced
  • ¼ cup red onion, chopped
  • ½ cup red pepper, diced
  • ¾ cup cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • ¾ cup cucumber, diced
  • 1 cup reduced-fat Italian dressing
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook pasta according to package.
  2. Drain pasta and let cool.
  3. In a large bowl mix pasta, red pepper, red onion, cucumber, cherry tomatoes and black olives.
  4. Add 1 cup of Italian dressing to pasta and gently mix all ingredients together.
  5. Chill pasta before serving.
