A simple-to-make pasta salad dressing, based on the ingredient list found on a box of pasta salad mix. My recipe is almost identical to the Italian-style pasta salad that comes from a box, but it tastes better.

Cook's Notes:

Toss dressing with 12 ounces cooked and cooled rotini pasta and 1 cup of cooked and cooled vegetables. A mixture of broccoli, cauliflower, and carrot works wonderfully.

You can also add some fresh chopped tomato and fresh basil or parsley.

If you do not add vegetables, this makes enough dressing for 1 pound of pasta.

Meat and cheese can be added the pasta salad to make it into an entire meal.
