When you head to Publix this week, be sure to grab a printable coupon to use, good towards 2 boxes of Suddenly Salad Pasta Salad. I took advantage of this savings and I’m going to share my favorite Summer Pasta Salad basic recipe. It makes the best light but filling lunch and it goes so well with whatever we’re grilling when I want to use it as a sidedish. It’s always a hit with my family no matter how I make it and I’m just betting it will be with yours too. So, start the grill, and go ahead and make up your Suddenly Pasta Salad so you can chill it before serving.
I start with Suddenly Pasta Salad Classic. I usually double this but today there are only 2 of us for lunch so I’m using one box.
I start cooking the pasta as directed on the stove.
While the Betty Crocker Pasta Salad is cooking, I get my veggies ready.
A salad of any type needs fresh diced tomatoes. I cut mine more chunky cut than small.
Black olives?! Yes please…
And of course we can’t leave out green olives. I add pimento and all.
1 can of drained peas, if you please.
By this time, your Suddenly Salad pasta should be done and ready to take off the stove (be sure to drain it before adding all of the ingredients).
Add Italian Dressing, enough to coat the pasta salad but not make it soggy. Play around with it, you’ll get it right.
Then add 1/2 of the packet of seasoning that comes in your Betty Crocker Suddenly Salad package.
Now give it all a good toss and put in the fridge until ready to serve.
This is really just a basic recipe and can be used so many different ways. It’s always depending on what I have on hand as to what I add. Other add ins include: cucumbers, onions, can of black beans, can of kidney beans, peppers and anything else I might want to add. Experiment to find your favorite way to serve Suddenly Pasta Salad.
FYI, when I have any Suddenly Salad Pasta Salad leftover, I save it to serve the kids as an after school snack. They don’t even realize there’s veggies in it because it’s so delicious.
