My Family’s Favorite Pasta Salad Recipe

Happy 4th of July to everyone! What are you and your family up to today? I hope lots of fun in the sun and time spent together. 🙂 As you know, we just moved into a new home (well, new to us) a couple of weeks ago, so we’ve been busy getting settled and unpacking/organizing everything.

So needless to say we need dinners to be as easy as possible right now.  Enter the most delicious pasta salad recipe. This recipe is from my mom, Linda, who has been making this pasta salad for over 30 years. It’s always a hit and major bonus: it comes together in 15 minutes or less!


  • 1 box of linguini, cooked

  • 1 medium tomato

  • 1 medium cucumber

  • 1 small red onion

  • 1 small jar (or half a jar) of Zesty Italian Dressing

  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup of Salad Supreme (it is a spice found in the baking aisle with the rest of the spices, it’s the “secret” to this recipe)

Stir everything together gently. Add any additional salad dressing or spice mix to taste. I’m usually right at 1/2 bottle of Salad Supreme and 1 small bottle of salad dressing.

This Pasta Salad is a crowd-pleaser and super fresh tasting. It’s delicious hot or cold!
