Pasta Salad Supreme

Angela (Grammy) Derby


I don't even remember how long I've had this great recipe for pasta salad, but I know it's been over thirty years. It was given to me by a friend, when we lived in Michigan, and I've made it ever since, to the delight of my family! The basics for this pasta are simple...your favorite pasta, Italian dressing, McCormick's Salad Supreme...and then any veggies, meats or cheeses you love! Really, that's it!

How to Make Pasta Salad Supreme


  1. Boil pasta in large pot until al dente; drain. Do not rinse, let cool for a few minutes.
  2. Add Italian dressing and 1/3 jar of Salad Supreme seasoning. (This mixture can marinate a few hours or overnight before continuing.)
  3. Mix in chopped vegetables (and any other goodies you like) and chill. I usually will add ham, salami, mozzarella, olives, artichoke hearts or anything else I have in the pantry that "floats my boat". Haha!
  4. You might like to add a couple of tablespoons of grated Romano or Parmesan for extra flavor.
