My Mom’s Pasta Salad Dressing Recipe

Jan 5, 2022

We recently made pasta salad while I was home over Christmas break. I love a good pasta salad so much. My mom shared with me an old recipe for a salad dressing she used to make and had been making again. It was so easy to make, only a few ingredients, and delicious! It is excellent on pasta or even a green salad. I am also going to share our entire pasta salad recipe because it was a huge hit. We filled it with lots of yummy toppings and then tossed with the dressing it was perfection! Enjoy!

We served ours with chicken salad, hummus and naan bread- so delicious.
