Let's Make Pasta Salad

Hey there!  Thanks for stopping by to see what I'm sharing for Thinking Out Loud Thursday.  Today I'm thinking about a yummy pasta salad recipe I picked up at work.  

A few months ago, I started a new job at a new company.  Our cafeteria is fabulous!  The other day I ordered the pasta salad as a side to my sandwich and it was so delicious I immediately asked for the recipe.  I was thrilled when Chef Johnny agreed to share it!  Now, I'm thrilled to share it with you ~

Here's What You Need
1 Diced Red Pepper
1/2 Cup Dried Parsley
1 Teaspoon Granulated Garlic
1/2 Cup Pickle Relish
2 Cups Mayo
1 Diced Small Onion
3 Tablespoons Mustard
Salt to Taste
Box of Pasta

Here's What You Do
Put your pasta in a pot of boiling, salted water and cook according to the directions on the package for al dente pasta.  I chose Ditalini pasta because I like the little round shapes.  You could also use macaroni and corkscrew pasta.  

While your pasta is cooking, dice the onion and red pepper.  I cut mine into fairly small pieces.

Add the remaining ingredients and mix together.  Just a side note:  That's not a typo on the amount of dried parsley.  It's truly 1/2 cup.  I thought that seemed like a lot, but it gives the salad a nice flavor.  As soon as the pasta is ready, drain and add to the mixture.  Give it a good stir.  Season with salt to taste.  

That's it!  Easy and delicious!  This is going to be my new go-to when I need to take a dish to a potluck or am looking for a side dish.  Hope you love it too!

Now it's your turn - what are you thinking out loud about today?  Link up and share!
