Pasta Salad

I don’t actually measure anything when I make this pasta salad. I pretty much cook the pasta and cut the veggies so they’re proportionate to the amount of pasta. Here are the ingredients:

Curly, colored pasta Garden Rotini
Carrots
Cucumber
Yellow Squash
Zucchini
Kosher Dill Pickles
Ham
Turkey
Zesty Italian Dressing

After I cook and drain the pasta, I dump the pasta in an ice bath to stop it from cooking any further. This also lets me combine all the ingredients as soon as I’m done with the pasta. As the pasta is cooking, I cut all the veggies and the ham & turkey in bite sized pieces. Once the pasta is chilled and everything is cut to size, I alternate layers of veggies to pasta in a bowl to help when I need to mix it. When it’s all layered, I pour the Italian dressing over and carefully mix it all together. Let sit at room temperature for about 20-30 minutes before chilling. Serve cool.

I’ll post a picture later since I made it today. 😀
