In the summer, we eat a lot of salads here in the south!
This is a simple pasta salad that is quick and easy to make. It's also very versatile too.
You can also add fried, crumbled bacon....canned tuna...chopped, cooked shrimp or crab meat. I even used some leftover roast chicken one time, it was very good. You can even omit the ranch dressing mix and just dress it with mayo or ranch dressing right out of the bottle!
