i love the stong flavor or the ranch and red vinegar in this. Yes this is much like the italian style pasta salad you can get at the deli but oh so much better. I prefer the lighter angel hair pasta but you might want to color it up with tricolored or shells or whatever.


Are you making this? 
1 package angel hair pasta (break in half) or
1 package tri-color spiral pasta
4 firm ripe seeded diced tomatoes
1 can sliced black olives; drained
2 medium cucumbers; peeled pulp removed and diced
1 small onion; finely diced
1 small green bell pepper; seeded and diced
1 small yellow bell pepper; seeded and diced
3 packages hidden valley ranch dressing mix
1 package Italian salad dressing mix (prepared as directed o
0.5 cup olive oil
