Italian Pasta Salad

If I had to choose only one thing to eat for the rest of my life it would be pasta in some form.  This pasta salad would be a top contender!  I love it because it’s easy to prepare, colorful, and delicious.  I’ve taken this to a few potlucks and it’s always a crowd-pleaser.


8 ounces Cooked Pasta (I like rotini)
1 Cucumber, quartered lengthwise, then chopped into bite sized pieces
14 ounce can Whole Medium Olives, halved
16 ounce package Grape Tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup Red Onion, diced

6 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon Italian Seasoning
1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper
1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Salt


Whisk all the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl.  Toss the pasta and veggies together in a bowl.  Pour the dressing over the pasta and veggies and stir it together.  Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour so all the flavors meld together.
