  • Con*** Blend honey, mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, onion, olive oil, sugar, and garlic salt in a blender. Stir in parsley. Stir dressing into the pasta, reserving 1/2 cup of dressing. Chill salad and reserved dressing in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Stir in the remaining dressing and Parmesan cheese before serving.

    This is the Corden Bleu Pasta Salad. It's not as hard as it looks. Most of the ingrediants go into the dressing and all you have to do is blend them all together. Good Luck.
