So I saw a post last week referring to no mayo pasta salad.
I usually am not a pasta salad fan, but I think I have only had it with mayo or miracle whip which I am not a fan of....
If you make pasta salad, how do you do it?
Cherryblossoms07:Rotini pasta, zesty Italian dressing, small cubes of cheese, diced onion and pepper, and baby tomatoes. You could add just about anything you want though - meat (pepperoni, ham, etc.), other veggies...
pretty much this, plus sliced mushrooms and sometimes grilled chicken.
I make this one:
Lemon juice, olive oil, tomatoes, zucchini, parsley and feta cheese. I use tomato basil feta for a little more flavor and color, but regular feta is fine.
I've never had it with mayo either.
pasta, cucumber, onion, tomato, Italian dressing
So, I love g
reek salad. I am seeing some with tomatoes, feta cheese. Do you think it would be good with balsamic vinegar?
Mayo in pasta salad isn't even pasta salad to me!
Italian dressing, tri-colored rotini noodles, cubed provolone cheese, pepperoni chunks and raw broccoli. Mmm.
Arnegard:So, I love greek salad. I am seeing some with tomatoes, feta cheese. Do you think it would be good with balsamic vinegar?

Mine is close to this only I add broccoli, black olives and carrots. The real recipe calls for salami but I don't normally have any.
I do the Italian one discussed above.
I also do one with grilled chicken and a half ranch/half Italian mix. It's too unhealthy for all the time, but once in awhile I make it as a guilty pleasure thing.
I also do one with bow ties cubed mozzerella, whatever veggies I have, tomatoes, black pepper, olive oil and basalmic. Kind of like a doctored up Caprese salad. I've also done it with cheese tortellini and then skipped the cubed mozz.
I despise mayo so I never make it that way..although it's all the rage here.
I make a Greek Pasta Salad.
I buy two bottles of greek salad dressing.
I crockpot two chicken breasts with the first bottle for 4 hours on high. I then shred the chicken into bite size pieces.
Then I cook lb of pasta to al dente.
I will slice tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, and kalamata olives. I will add peppercinnis and extra feta cheese.
toss the chicken, pasta, feta and the veggies and toss in the other bottle of dressing
I make a few different ones that don't include mayo.
First one is bowtie pasta, pepperoni slices cut into quarters, feta cheese, cherry tomatoes cut in half and greek salad dressing. Sometimes I will even add black olives if I have them. It is a really great salad.
Second one it cheese tortellinis, crumbled bacon, chopped broccoli, mozzarella cheese (either shredded or fresh cut into cubes) an a light vinigarette of your choice.
KateMW:I have only ever used oil is pasta salad...when there is mayo I think macaroni salad. Blech.
I thought the exact same thing, they are two totally different salads (except I do like macaroni salad too)

I won't even admit the one macaroni salad I do like...it's my secret shame.
