1 (16 ounce) package
green bell pepper, chopped
yellow bell pepper, chopped
2 (6 ounce) cans
sliced black olives
1 (8 ounce) bottle
Italian-style salad dressing, or more to taste
I made this for a family barbeque. Because we don't like green bell peppers, I used one large bell pepper in exchange. I also added some shredded sharp cheddar cheese. The italian dressing I used was Newman's Family Recipe Italian Dressing. Very simple. I liked that this used ingredients that I had on hand and it literally took 15 minutes to throw together. Everyone seemed to like it--my aunt took all the leftovers home.
Very, very basic pasta salad but cool and refreshing. Easy to make, loaded with veggies, and great for a summer evening!
I didn't have green, so I used a red and yellow bell pepper. I'm not a fan of the celery in this. I like the cucumber though. I added some green peas. I used Bruschetta Italian Vinaigrette by Wishbone. For leftovers I wanted to make this a meal, so I added pepperoni, chunked cheese, onions and carrots, then spruced it up with more dressing and we had dinner.
I absolutely love this recipe. I omitted the green bell pepper, used Kalamata olives instead of regular, and added a carton of peppercorn feta. It makes plenty to share.
