I've been making this salad for years. I am always requested to bring it to parties. I've always forgotten to get pictures, but remembered today. This is one of the best pasta salads I've ever made or tasted. Serve this salad at your next party, your guests won't be disappointed.

Enjoy!

red bell pepper - chopped
1/4 - 1/3 c
feta cheese
salt
& pepper to taste

DRESSING

1/2 c
hellmans mayonnaise
3 small
garlic cloves
1 Tbsp
each - red wine vinegar & corn syrup
1 1/2 tsp
worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp
olive oil
1 1/2 tsp
each - italian seasoning & dried parsley
1 tsp
lemon juice
1/8 c
feta cheese crumbles

Directions Step-By-Step

1
About an hour before making the salad, make the dressing, so it has time for all of the flavors to mingle.

In a food processor or blender, place all ingredients and blend until smooth. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before using.
2
Cook your pasta and drain, rinse.

Place all of the chopped vegetables and olives in a large bowl.
3
Toss with well drained pasta. Salt & pepper to taste.
4
Pour prepared dressing over pasta and toss to coat. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Right before serving, sprinkle with feta cheese crumbles. ( I would serve not long after adding the dressing, as with all pasta, it will absorb and be drier after sitting for hours. Or, I have at times made 1/2 recipe more of the dressing to add before serving.)
