Healthy Halloween Pasta Salad
This is a favorite at our house. So easy, and a perfect dish to bring to a halloween party!
This is one of my favorite things to bring to a Halloween party. We use a gluten free pasta, carrots, broccoli, cheddar cheese and zucchini. Cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, cauliflower and snow peas all work well too. Cook pasta according to package directions and add food coloring to the pasta water, or stir in coloring after draining the noodles.
Drain pasta and toss with veggies in Italian dressing. You want just enough dressing to coat the pasta and veggies so they don’t stick. Add more if needed for flavor.
Please share any additional ideas for this salad in the comments! I’d LOVE to know what creative twist you give it.
* Food coloring – I like using natural food based dyes from my local health food store. Chemical dyes have been linked to numerous health issues. You can get natural food dyes online, or do a search for homemade food coloring. You can purchase squid ink or squid ink pasta, it’s really black!
