Creamy Italian Pasta Salad
- 1 Pound rotini pasta
- 1 Cup Italian dressing
- 1/2 Cup mayonnaise
- 6 Tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 Tablespoons mustard
- 2 Cups chopped cucumber
- 1/2 Cup chopped celery
- 1 Cup sliced black olives
- 1 bunch green onions, sliced
- 2 Cups chopped cooked chicken
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Pinch of paprika (optional)
The creaminess in this recipe isn't as bad as you think. Only ½ cup of mayonnaise is added to the dressing, along with Italain dressing, mustard, and lemon juice, for a silky and flavorful dressing.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Heavily salt the water and stir in the pasta. Cook 1 minute past al dente. Rinse with cold water, and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine warm pasta with all other ingredients, stir until well mixed. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
