Chipotle Ranch Pasta Salad
Classic ranch flavor with a new twist! Creamy and flavorful, this pasta salad has just the right amount of ‘zing’ without going overboard. We kicked up the flavor in this pasta salad with a little heat and a lot of attitude. Keep it simple by tossing the dressing and pasta together, or add red bell pepper, red onion, and chicken for a wonderful “South of the Border” taste. Whether taking it to a summer barbeque or serving for lunch, every delicious bite will leave you wanting more.
You will need:
3/4 cup mayonnaise
3/4 cup milk
1 cup chopped celery
1 small red onion, diced
2 cups cooked chicken, diced (optional)
Combine dressing mix with mayonnaise and milk; whisk to blend. Chill at least 1 hour. In a large pot, bring 4 quarts of water to a boil. Add pasta to boiling water and cook for 6-8 minutes. Do not overcook – pasta should be quite firm for salads. Drain pasta and rinse under cold water. Refrigerate pasta for 1 hour. Toss chilled pasta, dressing and remaining ingredients together; serve immediately.
