Pasta Salads: Boxed and Homemade

Do you have a lot of Suddenly Salad's that you got for free a couple weeks ago?
Normally I just keep these in my food storage but I was lazy over the weekend and needed something for dinner.

I added tomato, chopped cheese sticks, and spanish olives.  I don't recommend adding the olives.  It made it too salty.  But the tomato and cheese are MUSTS!

This is my FAVORITE pasta salad recipe:  MUCH better, in fact I could eat it all.  ALL!

1 box Rotini pasta cooked Al Dente
1 cup chopped tomato
15-20 slices Hormel Turkey pepperoni chopped
atleast 4 cheese sticks chopped or diced mozzarella
Chopped Spanish Olives (to taste)  not too salty in this recipe :)
3 med carrots chopped
Half a cucumber chopped

1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
7 T Apple Cider Vinegar
1 t Seasoned Salt
1 T Dried Parsley
1 t Dried Basil
1 T Chives
1 t Garlic Powder
1 t Oregano

Mix ingredients.
Make Dressing and pour over ingredients
Refrigerate for 4 hours - not necessary but it tastes better
Makes 28 1/2 cup servings
