“I have made this salad quite a few times last summer, it was a big hit. It is a nice light pasta salad with a slightly sweet orangy flavored dressing, perfect for a summer get together. Of coarse all ingredients may be doubled if desired. I have even added in cooked cubed ham into this salad also. Prep time includes minimum 3 hours refrigeration time. If you prefer lots of dressing, just double up on the ingredients. I think you will really enjoy this salad!”

  1. To make the dressing: toss all the dressing ingredients together; whisk until well combined, set aside (dressing makes about 1 cup).
  2. Cook the pasta in a large pot with about 7-8 cups water (cook ONLY until firm tender, small-shell pasta takes very little time to cook!)drain, and rinse with cold water.
  3. Transfer the pasta to a large bowl, and toss with 2 tablespoon oil to prevent pasta from sticking together.
  4. Add in the remaining ingredients; toss to mix.
  5. Add/mix in the dressing; toss gently to combine.
  6. Place covered in refrigerator for 3 or more hours before serving.
