Sweet and sour sauce brings a new Asian-inspired twist to the traditional pasta salad. Serve with your favorite chicken, pork, or beef as a refreshing side dish.

If you are tired of the same old potato or macaroni salad and want raves, try this at your next picnic or pot luck! This recipe can be easily adapted depending on the veggies and dressing you use. Salad can be made the night before; however, add dressing just before serving.

a variation of pasta, couscous is great as it doesn't heat up the kitchen

BLT Macaroni Salad

Submitted by: Norene Wright 
This pleasing pasta salad is like eating a BLT in a bowl. Chock-full of crispy crumbled bacon, chopped tomato, celery and green onion, the sensational salad is draped in a tangy mayonnaise and vinegar dressing. It's a real crowd-pleaser! -Norene Wright, Manilla, Indiana

This is funny, I just asked the very same question the other day. after everyone's suggestions, this is what I did and I had rave reviews out of my friends.. even my husband liked it and he hates pasta salad! this is what I did: I cooked my 16 oz box of tri color rotini pasta and rinsed under cold water, chopped cauliflower, broccoli, red pepper, green pepper, vidalia onion, cucumber, baby carrots,celery, sprinkled generously with salad supreme (thank you for suggesting this spice) and poured 1/2 of a bottle of wishbone italian dressing mixed with about 4 T of sugar and put in my bowl with a tight fitting lid andturned upside down in the fridge overnight. Before serving the next day I added the last half of bottle of Wishbone Italian dressing. It was an absolute hit at our moving party! I will definitely make this again!! Thank you all VERY MUCH!!!

This pasta salad - made with Provolone, salami, pepperoni, bell peppers, and black olives tossed with fusili pasta and Italian salad dressing - is very easy to make, AND can be prepared in 45 minutes or less.

I added more of the dry mix and spices. Used peas instead of olives and cheddar cubed (optional)

This is a quick light meal. Wilted spinach, bacon and tomatoes are tossed with penne pasta. Good for any season and will complement anything.
