In this post I’ll be sharing a delicious and easy Colonial Pasta Salad Recipe.

To begin, what is colonial pasta salad? Colonial Dressing from Bob Evan’s is a favorite of ours. I decided to make a pasta salad with it and it’s a winner! Cool and perfect on a hot day. That’s why I call this recipe, colonial pasta salad.

What? Did you think it was just a really old side dish?

There are many delicious dressing, whether homemade or store bought, that make great sauces for recipes besides just a garden salad.

The Colonial dressing is sweet and tangy and woks beautifully with the mix of fresh cooked pasta and savory ingredients in this pasta salad.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Pasta, I used Casarecce – pronounced “KAH-SAH-REY-CHEY” cooked according to directions.
  • Red Onion, diced
  • 4 oz White Cheddar, cut into small cubes
  • 1 Cucumber, peeled and diced
  • Grape Tomatoes

When pasta has cooled, combine all ingredients and chill until ready to serve. I typically wait until serving to add the tomatoes.
