Pasta salad..fresh veggies, tangy Italian dressing.. A must try easy recipe

Today in the quest of making Salad yet breaking the routine I made this interesting Pasta salad with home made Italian dressing.
I got the recipe for Italian dressing here , though I ended up adapting it as I prefer using the natural ingredients then the ready made powders for obvious reasons. Like Lemon in place of vinegar and fresh garlic paste in place of garlic powder etc. Also I added cream cheese to this dressing to add that zing. You can omit it by all means, to cut the calories but it did lift the taste.


For Italian Dressing:

Lemon Juice 3 tbsp

Olive Oil 2 tbsp

Garlic paste 1/4 tsp

oregano 1/2 tsp

basil dried 1/2 tsp

black pepper powder

salt to taste


Boiled Pasta 1 cup

Tomato chopped 1/2 medium

Onion chopped 1/2 medium

Black olives pitted 3 tbsp

Green bell pepper chopped 3 tbsp


MIx all the ingredients for Italian seasoning set aside

Mix all the ingredients for salad and add seasoning and toss together. Use enough seasoning to coat the pasta well and let it rest in fridge for 15-20 minutes  and then enjoy this low cal and wholesome salad. You can try Parmesan cheese
