3 Ingredient Pasta Salad

3 Ingredient Pasta Salad

This 3 ingredient pasta salad is perfect for your next picnic or pot luck with fresh Italian dressing, creamy mozzarella, and spicy pepperoni.

When it comes to potato and pasta salad I’m a pretty simple gal.  So, it’s no surprise that the pasta salad I grew up on was nothing but pasta and Italian dressing.  This was how my grandma made pasta salad for as long as I can remember.  And when I started experimenting with different recipes I just couldn’t shake the old standby.  It just doesn’t get easier than 1 ingredient, besides the pasta of course.

Then one day I made this pasta salad for an end of the year picnic.  I especially like this for a picnic because it has no mayo, sour cream, or cream cheese in it so it doesn’t need to be refrigerated.  A friend mentioned in passing that it would be great with some mozzarella.  And it was like fireworks and angels singing.  Or something.  So the very next time I made it I added some chunks of mozzarella when it was still warm.  They got soft but not melted because they were in chunks and it was soooo good.
