Festive Pasta Salad

Last night, my husband and I and two children attended the Gunning Lion's Club Christmas Dinner which is a bring a dish affair at the local meeting centre and we were asked to take along a contribution of a salad.

I'm going to share my recipe for my pasta salad that I got from a friend because it is darn easy as most ingredients you can have on hand and whip it up in a couple of hours (the time is cooling time!)!

1 packet of pasta (I used a 500grm packet of macaroni), cooked and then drain well, pour into a salad bowl and stir about every two minutes so it doesn't stick and to let the steam out. I also poured about a tablespoon of oil through about 10 minutes after draining.

When the pasta is well on the way to cooling, pour in 1 bottle of Thousand Island Dressing. I used Woolworths Select, but any other brand will do.

Then add

Chopped red capsicum, chopped green capsicum, half a can of corn nibblets, some red cocktail onions (or green!), some grated Parmesan cheese and I sprinkled over some chilli flakes for a bit more zing.

Other ingredients you could add include: diced mushrooms, feta cheese, cooked diced bacon, hard boiled egg chopped, cherry tomatoes, tinned mixed beans, chives, chopped salami, partially cooked frozen peas, asparagus, broccoli etc.

You are only limited by your imagination!

 Yummy .... and even better the second day!
