By Tawnya Burket July 6, 2015
Picky eaters at your picnic? Try out this kid-approved pasta salad. It’s quick, easy and – best of all – yummy!

  • 12 oz. box of pasta (use spirals for some extra fun!)
  • 2 medium tomatoes
  • 1 ½ to 2 cucumbers
  • ½ block of Colby or your favorite cheese, cut into chunks
  • 1 can sliced black olives, drained
  • Handful of mini pepperoni
  • Salad Supreme seasoning
  • Zesty Italian dressing
  1. Cook pasta as directed, drain and rinse with cold water
  2. Dice tomatoes, cucumbers and cheese 
  3. Mix all ingredients together in large bowl
  4. Season with Salad Supreme (or a combination of your favorite herbs and seasonings)
  5. Pour generous amount of dressing over all (approx. ½ cup)
Let salad sit in the refrigerator for about 1 hour before serving. You may need to add more dressing prior to serving as the noodles absorb it.
