Pasta Salad

Here is the recipe for the new pasta salad we tried. The Italian Dressing is made from scratch and that recipe is also listed below.

The pasta salad recipe was found at and the italian dressing recipe was found at


What you will need:

  • 8 ounces of uncooked pasta
  • 1/2 Cucumber, chopped
  • 1/4 Onion, finely chopped
  • 5 Cherry Tomatoes, quartered
  • 1/2 cup Black Olives, sliced
  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the pasta, and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and cool by running cold water over the pasta in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Combine cooked and cooled pasta with the cucumbers, onion, tomatoes, and olives in a large bowl.

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

3.  Add all of the ingredients to a salad shaker, mason jar or other container. Close with a tight-fitting lid and shake for about 10 seconds to combine.

4.  Pour 1 cup of the Italian dressing over the salad and stir to combine.
