i usually use Italian dressing or another vinaigrette dressing. Add some veggies cheese olives garlic sometimes capers depends on the dressing. Mine is always simple and fast.

i luv pasta salad

i use diced red onion, carrots, garbanzo beans or cannellini beans, sundried tomatoes or regular tomatoes, olives, celery, parsley, basil
+
rainbow rotini or fusili or bowties or pinwheels (whatever fork sized shape)
+
dress with olive oil, balsamic or red whine vinegar, salt, pepper, crushed garlic or garlic powder (or use a store bought balsamic dressing or italian dressing)

that's pretty much it, its versatile but i think the key ingredients are red onions, olives, and herbs that give it that certain flavor.

What kind of pasta do you use ? I find that the smaller types that are made with wholemeal, spelt of soya flour have a better taste.

You also need to undercook the pasta slightly and season it with vinaigrette ( a simple homemade evo dressing with lemon or vinegar) whilst it is still warm. It will finish off cooking naturally.

You then need a bit of crunch by adding raw diced or shredded vegetables. I also like to add some leaves eg rocket or baby mesclun. I also like to add a few Greek or French black olives.

Here is the link to a Ruby Tuesday creamy pasta salad recipe. It has a lot of dairy (sour cream and cheese) and ham that you'll have to sub, but on the plus side, there is pasta and peas. http://rubytuesdayrecipes.blogspot.c...salad.html?m=1
