15 Min


No-Cook or Other


4 large
very ripe tomatoes, quartered and halved
1 large
red onion sliced with rings separated into circles
2 large
green peppers cleaned of it top and seeded, and sliced in rings
1 large
yellow or orange pepper cleaned, seeded, sliced in rings
1 pkg
good season's salad dressing mixed per package
for the packaged dressing i use red wine vinegar and oil for the dressing above. i have used bottled dressing, it just is not the same.
1 lb
pasta of choice (rotini works well) save for next day.

Directions Step-By-Step

Throw the veggies in a pretty bowl which complements the colors of the salad and toss with dressing. Serve very cold as a side with some grilled chicked or salmon.
This keeps well because there is no lettuce so make more than you need(two day).
You can cook up some pasta shapes (rotini, bowties) the next day. Cool the pasta in ice water and drain.
Toss with the veggies as is, or you can cut the pieces smaller, maybe add some leftover cold meat or add some cheese cubes.
Add a little more dressing and you have...pasta salad!
