  • 16 oz tri-colored spiral pasta , cooked, drained, and rinsed
  • 16 oz Zesty Italian Salad dressing
  • 2 tsp. lemon pepper seasoning

Now here's the fun part, add a few or all of the following:


  • Cook the noodles in boiling water until al dente.  Drain and pour into a large mixing bowl.
  • While pasta is cooking, chop and dice any ingredients that need preparing.
  • Gently toss the pasta, dressing, and all other remaining ingredients together. 
  • Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving. If you make it the day before you plan to serve it, wait until just before serving to add cheese or avocado to the salad.
