uncooked tri-color spiral pasta
diced processed American cheese
1 large head
broccoli, cut into florets
1 (16 ounce) bottle
Italian-style salad dressing
There wasn't enough in this recipe so I ended up adding a lot of extras like olives, mushrooms, mozzarella and cheddar cheese rather than american, cucumber and onions. The spiral tri-color pasta works the best though. It gives extra color and it traps the sauce well. I also make my own dressing.
I really modified this one for a cook-out out at our camp today. Rave reviews. pasta, parmesan cheese, diced danish ham, broccoli, red onion, black olives, italian seasonings, cukes, and Wishbone Robusto salad dressing. Folks LOVED it...
Great base recipe. I made this for a BBQ. I didn't have broccoli though. I added black olives, salad seasoning, diced cheddar cheese, and dressing.
The base of this salad is great but I also add black olives, chunks of feta(instead of american cheese, thin small slices of onion and bell pepper, pepperoni and a T or so(depending on taste) of salad seasoning. You can also use low fat or non-fat dressing to make it more healthier.
This is so kitchen friendly, you can add anything and everything to this. I have added chunks of salami, cheeses of all kinds including chunks of bleu cheese, feta, provolone... This is the most versatile and easy recipe!
This was a great recipe. I just felt it need just a little bit more. I added cucumbers, olives and tomatoes.
QUICK! EASY! DELICIOUS! Need I say more? :)
Excellent recipe! Loved it!
