Pasta Party Salad Recipe


Poppy Seed dressing is the key ingredient to this festive pasta salad.


  • 1 bottle of Kitchen Kettle Poppy Seed Dressing
  • 1 lb. Rainbow shells or your favorite pasta
  • 2 c. chopped frozen or fresh vegetables
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2-3 celery stalks, chopped
  • Chopped fresh parsley, to taste


Add pasta to 6 cups of boiling water. Cook 5-7 minutes until tender. Drain and add the onion, celery and poppy seed dressing to hot pasta and toss together. Add the vegetables, if using frozen vegetables this will cool pasta quickly. Add fresh chopped parsley.

Cooking tips:
For best flavor, make the day before. Keep an extra bottle of poppy seed dressing on hand in case pasta absorbs too much of dressing.

Vegetable suggestions:
snow peas, broccoli, carrots, water chestnuts, green pepper, etc.
