Expert Tips

Salad supreme seasoning is a blend of herbs, salt and pepper that quickly gives a flavor boost to pasta salads. Look for the blend in the spice section of the grocery store.

This marinated pasta salad can be made with any variety of vegetables. Try thinly sliced carrots, sliced zucchini or cooked green beans in place of one of the vegetables suggested in our version. Sliced green or ripe olives are also a nice addition.
