Now that summer is nearly upon us, pasta salad is once again on many menu plans. If you're getting tired of the same old recipe, here's another one to try out. The “secret” ingredient is McCormick Salad Supreme Seasoning. You'll find it at just about every large supermarket in the spice aisle, and it gives ordinary pasta salad recipes that extra “zip” that draws compliments when you bring it to potlucks and family gatherings. Here's how I make mine:
Super-Easy Pasta Salad
1 box Rotini pasta (I used whole wheat pasta)
1 C. zesty Italian dressing
1 container grape tomatoes, sliced or halved
1 green pepper, diced
1 onion, diced
4 Tbsp. McCormick Salad Supreme Seasoning
Combine all the ingredients above and chill. Toss before serving.
Note: You can change up this recipe according to your taste and what you have on hand. It is also very good with diced cheese cubes or feta cheese crumbles.
