VEGGIE PASTA SALAD
It is very simple though a bit time consuming
cleaning all the veggies.
1 Pound Vegtable Rotini (multi colored pasta)
1 or 2 large Green Peppers
1 large Yellow Pepper
1 large Red Pepper
1 large Orange Pepper
and any other colored peppers you may have or
want. I added Chocolate & Lavender Peppers as well this time and at the
Nodrog Specialty as I had them in my garden.
2 or 3 Cucumbers
sweet onion (I use Vadalia's when available, including this time. I
buy them before the season ends and store them in the fridge).
3 or 4 stalks of celery
2 or 3 large tomatoes
1 Can of
black olives either large size or sliced. If you buy the whole ones
in the large size silce them into 3 or 4 slices each.
1 bottle of Wishbone Robusto
cut peppers, celery, cucumbers & tomatoes into
bite size or slightly smaller pieces. I tend to leave the tomatoes in
larger pieces and add more as we love tomatoes. Cut onions into small
pieces. Add sliced olives and mix all together.
Add most of the bottle of dressing 10 minutes or
so before serving as it tends to soak it up and go slightly flat if left too
long. Stir in and stir up periodically. Add more dressing as needed.
This makes a huge bowl so you can either add or
cut back on the amount of veggies. When camping at dog shows I have even
used a large clean dishpan. I added more to both the one at the hunt trial
and the one at the specialty so there would be more to go around. The
amount of pasta always stays the same unless you really want to get carried
