Makin’ It Monday: Pasta Salad

ALEXANDRIA, VA – This is always a summer favorite but can be served all year round. There is no specific recipe for this but here is what we typically use when we make Pasta Salad.


  • 1lb Pasta (your choice in style/cut)
  • 1/2 Pepper
  • 1 Cup of chopped meat (ham, pepperoni, turkey, chicken)
  • 1/2 Cup Oil Based Salad Dressing
  • 1/2 Cup Cream Based Salad Dressing
  • 2 Carrots Finely Chopped
  • 1/4 Cup corn
  • 3 Celery Stocks, Halved and Chopped

Step 1:  Fill a Dutch over 1/2 way with water. Place on stove on medium heat to boil.

Step 2: Cut the carrots into large chunks and then finely chop carrots in a food chopper.

Step 3: Cut celery in halve and then finely chop.

Step 4: Chunk meat of choice into small pieces.

Step 5: Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and let sit until pasta is ready.

Step 6: Once water has come to a light boil, place pasta in the dutch oven and cook until desired firmness has been reached.

Step 7: Strain the pasta and slowly blend into the bowl with the other ingredients.

Step 8: Let cool before placing into the refrigerator  to prevent bacteria form forming.

Step 9: Serve cool!

Here is what the final product should look like!
