  • I like a cream dressing. I honestly don't think I've ever had a pasta salad with Italian dressing on it! Wow... that's sheltered.. haha.
    I love various stuff in my pasta salads. Tunas, veggies like sugar snap peas, carrots, broccoli, cucumber, olives... etc. Or chicken or turkey.

  • I usually use one of the bottled Italian or vinaigrette dressings and I add wacky mac colored noodles, broccoli, mushrooms, a packet of dry Italian dressing mix, black and green olives, sometimes cucumbers, tomato chunks, salami chunks, jarred marinated artichoke hearts, and grated Parmesan cheese.

  • I just ate some italian pasta salad for lunch and along with the italian dressing it had bow tie pasta,grape tomatoes,salami,pepperoni,artichoke,carrot shreds

    I also like the creamy salads and make those more often in the summer. In the summer I could buy stock in the pasta companies,lol

  • I think mayonnaise would be a key ingredient in any creamy dressing. I like a pasta salad which has a creamy consistency to it like the macaroni salad I make during the warmer weather. It's a cool but refreshing salad which goes well with just about all types of meat.
