What kind of dressing do you put on your pasta salad that little kids like (my dd is almost 3). I usually do greek but looking for more variety. I saw to use the little wheel pastas or to use tortillini pastas. Just looking for dressing ideas.

When we ate "normal" food we had pasta salad with italian dressing, black beans, and diced tomatoes.  My kids loved it

a simple butter sauce or ranch. or evo with some parm, make a nice cheese sauce, but not like mac in cheese like a white sharp cheese that you wont have to use so much. also tossing in broccoli and chicken with a little butter and garlic, my kids love that! try tossing in dome different veggies and use a little evo or salad dressing to keep it moist. have fun with it!

 Ranch dressing is usually a favorite of kids.

 I normally use a robusto or zesty italian on my pasta salads.  Although with picky kids I might just use a plain italian.
