Creamy Conchiglie Pasta Salad
Made by creating a dressing of sorts, this is the old Southern way of making pasta salad. Using celery, red and green bell peppers, onion, salad cubes (sweet pickles) with a blend of mayo, seasonings, and vinegar, the pasta melds into a wonderfully creamy, cold side dish that's perfect for cookouts and family gatherings, as well as Sunday dinners.
You can fold in the cheese up to several hours before serving if you need to transport the salad.
If adding softer ingredients like cheese or eggs or ingredients that will soften over time, do so the day of serving.
