Calico Cauliflower Pasta Salad
By Pat Duran kitchenchatter
This is a colorful tossed veggie salad with pasta and a lemony vinaigrette that coats the salad that is a little tart.
Great to serve for a summer BBQ or family gathering or block party.
Janet got "Chocolate Covered Cherry Mice"TAKE THE QUIZ and find out what Halloween treat you are!
Combine all vegetables in a large bowl. (add seafood,or ham or bacon or tuna now if using) Set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk the lemon juice, vinegar, dill, sugar, garlic, salt and pepper. Gradually whisk in the olive oil. (mix in mayonnaise if add the seafood or ham,tuna or bacon)
I usually make double dressing to serve at the table- the pasta will absorb some of the dressing- so it depends how moist you like your salad.

Yeah- you can add cooked pieces of ham or bacon or tuna or shrimp if desired and 1 cup of mayonnaise too. I'll go back and add that too. Thanks , the shrimp was my son's idea and the mayo was my mom. Thanks,Pat
