This yummy pasta salad recipe uses just three ingredients & takes under 30 minutes to make! If you love the combo of sweet and savory, give it a try!


  • 12 oz Box of Tri-Color Rotini
  • 16 oz Italian Salad Dressing
  • 12 oz Poppy Seed Dressing


  1. Cook the Rotini according to the package (boil water, add the pasta, boil until tender)
    Drain thoroughly and rinse with cold water until all of the pasta is cool. I use my sink’s sprayer attachment.
    Pour the pasta into a big bowl 
    Mix in about 1/2 of the bottle of Italian dressing. Keep the rest reserved for those who want to add a bit more to their pasta salad.
    Stir really well. I put the lid on and shake it like crazy.
    Add about 8oz of Poppy Seed Dressing right to the pasta salad OR add about 1-2 tablespoons to individual servings of the salad
