Cook bowtie pasta
Mix half italian dressing with half mayonaise - to make a dressing.
broccoli florets
shredded carrots
parmesan cheese.
purple onion

Just mix it all together. You can also add any other vegetables that you like. It looks really nice also. I usually put extra parmesan on top.

I just came across this recipe in a magazine... haven't tried it yet but it sure sounds yummy!!

Pizza Pasta Salad

3 cups penne pasta, cooked, drained and cooled
4 tomatoes (about 1 1/2 lbs), chopped
12 slices Oscar Mayer hard salami, chopped
1 cup Kraft Natural Mozzarella Cheese Crumbles
1/2 cup sliced fresh basil
1/2 cup Kraft 100% grated Parmesan Cheese
1/2 cup Kraft Roasted Red Pepper Italian with Parmesan dressing

Toss all ingredients in large bowl; cover. Refrigerate at least one hour before serving.



I think I might try substituting pepperoni for the salami. And I don't see why shredded Mozzarella wouldn't work just as well as the crumbled kind.

I saw it yesterday (probably in the same magazine). I'm going to try this next weekend at the party too.

I have made this and do use shredded mozzarella and pepperoni and it tastes good. The first time I made it I followed the recipe out of the Kraft Foods magazine but then after that I used subsitutes

Cottage Cheese Fruit salad

Mix one pint cottage cheese with one small can crushed pineapple and one small can mandarin oranges. Mix in one small box of Jell-o powder, any flavor. Our favorites are strawberry, orange, or lime. Throw in a couple of handfuls of colored mini marshmallows (optional). Stir well, then fold in one container of CoolWhip. Don't stir too hard, or you will deflate your coolwhip, just stir till all combined. Refrigerate for a few hours before serving.

Just a hint, but sometimes I add extra fruits depending on what flavor Jell-o I am using. If I am using strawberry, I may chop up and add some fresh strawberries. One year I had some fantastic sweet dark cherries from a local orchard. I used black cherry Jell-o (not sure if they make it anymore) and chopped and added some of the fresh cherries.

This is always a hit with the kids!

Great ideas on this thread!

One of the salads I like to make in the summer:

--Grilled vegetables (tomatoes, zucchini, onions, asparagus, etc.-- your choice)
-- Grilled chicken
-- Mexican cheese mix
-- croutons

I spread this mix over a bed of fresh greens and serve with poppyseed dressing.

It's always a big hit!

I have made a salad like this a few times. It is very good. I just use sunflower seeds instead of the almonds.
