Zesty Pasta Salad

It’s Labor Day weekend and you know what that means…Cookouts!!

Whenever I get invited to a gathering, I like to have something to bring. There’s just something about coming over to a party empty handed that makes me feel guilty. Should I bring wine? Should I bring a dish? Should I bring dessert?

My go-to item to bring to any cookout or social gathering is my Zesty Pasta Salad.

Zesty Pasta Salad

Before becoming a vegetarian, I used to make this dish all the time including several meats. I would add pepperoni slices, shrimp, and diced ham. It was always a hit. Initially, I didn’t know how to spice up my pasta salad without meat. It took some experimenting, but I finally figured it out.

What I love the most about this pasta salad is that it’s so darn easy to make. The most work you’ll put into making this dish is dicing up your vegetables.

The Mrs. Dash seasoning gives this pasta salad that extra kick and flavor that meat used to give this dish. It has several spices included and is packed with lots of flavor.

I’ve seen several recipes use a variety of different salad dressings, but the Zesty Italian is by far my favorite. I love that garlic, lemon, and vinegar flavors. Give a try. This will surely be a hit at any cookout or social gathering for your Labor Day.
