This salad is full of flavors. It should be made ahead and refrigerated at least 4 hours to meld all the seasonings together. It is a wonderful salad for a crowd, or for a few, and is very colorful. Don't worry about leftovers as this salad is better the next day. It is always popular.

How to Make Angel Hair Pasta Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare the angel hair pasta according to directions (al dente). Cool and set aside. While the pasta is cooking, steam each kind of vegetable separately 1 to 2 minutes. Rinse in cold water to stop the cooking process. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine chopped onions, black olives, red pepper, monterrey jack cheese. Chop the snow peas in half, as well as the broccoli florets. Combine all steamed vegetables into the bowl with the other ingredients. Add feta cheese. Add cooked pasta. Season with salt and black pepper. Note: Add some garlic powder if you do not use the garlic dressing.
  3. Sprinkle in the McCormicks Supreme Salad seasoning, using approximaly 3/4 of the bottle. Add the parmesan cheese and toss all ingredients. Pour in enough garlic dressing to moisten the salad good (which requires most of the dressing) but do not oversaturate the salad. You can always add more later after it has chilled. The pasta will soak up some of the dressing. Chill at least 4 hours or longer. It is even better the next day. Enjoy!

    *You can buy this dressing online (garlic-expressions.com) or substitute another good vinaigrette or italian dressing.
