I just love a creamy Pasta Salad, and this salad is very easy to make, and you can have it ready to go in under 30 minutes. Made with simple ingredients that you probably already have in your cupboard and fridge.
In my recipe I used Mayo and Mustard, with Sweet Relish which gives it a nice tangy kick. And what’s great about this salad it will keep in your fridge for up to 5 days and still taste amazing.
As I mentioned in my video, I put the Onions and Celery in the food processor because I want the veggies to be chopped fine and about the same size. I found out when I do this that the salad blends better and has a creamier texture instead of crunching into big pieces of veggies.
I also added Shredded Carrots which are shredded very fine, so they blend in perfect with this salad. This salad should be served chilled for best results. You can use whatever pasta you like, but I love the Tri-color Pasta, the green pasta is Spinach flavored, and the Orange color is Tomato flavored, and the different colors makes a beautiful presentation at any gathering. So, make this for you family or guest, I am sure they will gobble it up. Enjoy!
