Expert Tips

Refrigerating pasta salads like this one allows flavors to blend, improving the taste. Stir in a little additional milk before serving to moisten the salad, if needed.

Customize your salad with toppings your family loves, such as crumbled cooked bacon, sunflower nuts or chopped fresh herbs.

For a southwestern flavor, stir in 1/2 teaspoon chili powder with the seasoned salt.
