Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Please refer to the "Cook's Note" if your personal choice is not to use food coloring :) On a related note, if you are choosing to go for the tie dyed effect, the recipe should say to use regular rotini pasta, not the tri colored (though the tri colored is delightful if you forgo the coloring). Obviously, this isn't an every night side, but something to mix things up a bit for a special occasion (the special occasion it was created for was a Tie Dyed themed baby shower). Regardless of your color stance, this is one of our family's favorite pasta salads and a nice change of pace from the standard italian dressing based pasta salads. I do recommend adjusting the sugar to your personal preference. Enjoy!
A nice change of pace from the Italian and Greek pasta salad dressings. I used a variety of garden vegetables with shell pasta, as that's what I had. I hope to have a reason to try the Tied Dyed effect sometime!
I was looking for an alternative pasta dish to serve to my family. I feel compelled to write this review.
I implore you to NEVER use artificial food coloring. It causes all kinds of well known, long term health issues/diseases. You wouldn't willing serve/eat poison, would you? Make your own natural organic healthy food coloring from things like Carrots, Saffron, Turmeric or Beets. I mean this to be helpful in every way possible since I have first hand experience w/ this subject (ADD/ADHD? get the artificial food coloring out of the body all together).
