What do we need to prepare a salad with Italian dressing?

all Recipes | Pasta Salad ingredients
Salad ingredients
  • Pasta. Use large pasta. It is best to use fusilli (spirals) because the salad dressing “clings” to them perfectly.
  • Vegetables. Cucumber and red onion, juicy cherry tomatoes (you can use different colors to your taste) and fresh pea shoots and parsley.
  • Cheese – This recipe uses mini mozzarella balls to provide a creamy flavor that complements the crunchy vegetables.

If we consider this recipe in particular, then the listed products are the basis for the salad. That is, it can be prepared exclusively from them, or supplemented with other ingredients, or something can be changed.

So if you don’t have pea shoots, you can easily replace them with spinach, watercress, or arugula. The same applies to mozzarella: you can substitute it with feta, goat cheese or even cubes of cheddar cheese.

If you want to create a main dish, add cooked shredded chicken, chopped crispy bacon, or small slices of salami to the salad. For a Mediterranean-style dish, replace the cherries with sun-dried tomatoes, add olives, anchovies and roasted red peppers.

As you can see, there are many variations for the dish, and you will love this unusual combination of pasta and vegetables. Write your feedback about this recipe in the comments.
