Ultimate Pasta Salad Recipe

Yesterday was the 4th of July, and just another excuse to cook! The secret to a delicious pasta salad is always the dressing. My Mother-in-law shared this secret with me when we first got married, and now I pass it along to you!


  • 1 box of spiral noodles
  • 1 pound of monterey jack cheese
  • 1/2 pound of salami
  • 2 cups of cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup of sliced olives
  • 1 small jar of marinated artichoke hearts (drained)
  • 4 green onions (chopped)
  • Good Seasons cheese garlic dressing

First get your kids involved in helping you cook. It will help create a special bond. Next chop the green onion, salami, cheese and tomatoes. 

Add all the remaining ingredients into a large bowl.

Now are you ready for the secret? Good Seasons Cheese Garlic salad dressing. I mix it with balsamic vinegar, and it comes out delicious every time. You can purchase the mix and jar at any grocery store - it's old school!

Boil the pasta - let cool - mix with ingredients - add dressing - enjoy!


  1. This sounds delish! I really need to remember this the next time I want to bring a contribution to a BBQ. I think it would be a great addition.

  2. You make such great dishes, Shelby! I'll have to try this one.
