Summertime Pasta Salad

For our family’s Father’s Day Gathering, I made a great pasta salad. When I was a kid, I avoided all mixed salads–pasta, potato, tuna, chicken. However, I loved my mom’s pasta salad (this is her recipe modified a bit). My very picky boyfriend even liked it. Plus, since I made it, it is GUARANTEED to be quick, easy, and very difficult to mess up.


Pasta Salad
This easy pasta salad is great to take to summer gatherings. It’s versatile and appeals to many palates.

-1 16 oz. Box of Rotini
-1 Package of Grape Tomatoes
-1 Large Cucumber
-1 8oz. Bag of Colby Jack Cheese Cubes
-1 Bottle of Seven Seas Viva Italian Dressing

Cook Pasta as package directs. Move pasta to bowl. Pour Italian dressing, grape tomatoes, and cheese cubes into pasta. Seed and chop cucumber; add to pasta. Chill in refridgerator and serve.

To make this pasta salad an entree, simply add pepperoni, turkey pepperoni, or a vegetarian equivalent. You can also add chopped black olives or substitute your own homemade zesty italian dressing for some extra flavor.

  1. I’m the father for whom the salad was prepared. It was great! I expect more for my birthday.
