Easy Ranch Pasta Salad with Veggies
Vegetables: In this salad, I used spinach, carrots, cucumbers, peppers and tomatoes. Change up the vegetables with you have on hand or what is in season
Pasta: This recipe is a great way to use up left over cold pasta. If making fresh pasta, let it cool first.
Choose your vegetables
Chop the vegetables to bite sized pieced.
Add the cold pasta and vegetables in a bowl then toss with ranch dressing
Salad can be made in a large batch or bowl by bowl
This has quickly become an easy dish that my whole family loves. The great part about it is that you can use your favorite kinds of veggies and your favorite pasta! Make it how ever you like or make it bowl by bowl so that you can get what you like and others get what they like. It’s that simple!
I love all veggies but I know that my husband is not a huge fan of tomatoes. So I leave those out and just add them to mine. If you like bow tie pasta like me then use that but if you like twisty noodles for the kids, then go for it. The possibilities are endless.
