Festive Pasta Salad (S)
Hey guys! Today I am sharing this side dish. A similar one has been in my family for a while and is at every BBQ or get together, that I can remember, so I HAD to make one that I could eat that would be comparable and on my Trim Healthy Mama plan! It’s an easy one (especially if you have the ranch dressing pre-made)! I love that it’s more of a summer side dish with cold pasta and boiled eggs. Really does go wonderful with BBQ!!
NOW, if you follow Trim Healthy Mama, like I do, you will want to keep to a smaller portion and keep your Dreamfields Pasta usage to once a week (as recommended in the book). Boil up water in a big pot with a tsp or so of salt (that part is optional… just what I do).
Make your ranch dressing or get it ready. (The original recipe calls for a ranch packet with mayo and milk). I used a delicious recipe from a wonderful family friend, Cathy Kane, and changed it up a little bit. Keep it chilling in the fridge while you follow the other steps. Oh you could be boiling eggs as well. 🙂
Chop your boiled eggs.
Cathy Kane’s Ranch Dressing (I was able to get her approval to post this wonderful dressing and I will post my additions to make it Trim Healthy Mama) is SOOOOOOOOO GOOD and I so appreciate her sharing this recipe with me!!Print
