A nice vegetable pasta salad, great as a side dish at a barbecue or on a summer evening. Easy to make and delicious.
This was a wonderful salad!! I have made it several times. It is good on hot days or when you want it to work as a side dish. Although I only used regular rotini noodles instead of the colored ones, I am willing to try both. It is also a tasty way to get kids to eat their vegetables!! Mine loved it!! Also, I brought it to a recent family reunion and I had none to bring back home with me! Thank you Melissa! - 27 Jun 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I was skeptical...but this was GREAT. I used all leftovers from the fridge -- spaghetti noodles, steamed carrots and cauliflower. I omitted the onion (didn't want) and brocolli (didn't have), substituted red bell pepper for green, and used lowfat "parmesan peppercorn ranch" dressing. I've been dieting and made this for a quick lunch yesterday. Give it a try. The pasta really mellows out the peppercorn taste in the dressing. I'll save all my leftover dinner veggies from now on to use in this salad! - 09 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
We didn't really like this recipe. The Ranch just didn't appeal to us and we are a family of Ranch dressing eaters. I won't make again. - 01 Nov 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
