Summer Recipe Series: Cool & Zesty Pasta Salad
Looking for a perfect summer side dish for your next family reunion, cookout or beach trip? This easy, crisp, and cool pasta salad is sure to impress. Here is what you will need:
1 box of spiral pasta (tri-color works well, too,)
1 – peeled and diced cucumber
1 – diced green pepper
1 – mozzarella cheese ball (or mozzarella cheese “pearls” if you can find them)
1 cup zesty Italian salad dressing
Cook and drain pasta. Dice cucumber and green pepper and toss into pasta. Add zesty Italian dressing, and mix well (you may add more to taste, or if it seems to dry).
