I have listed all the ingredients and directions so you just have to follow them step by step and you are good to go! Have a wonderful day, friends, and I hope you are all well today. Enjoy!
1 lb tri-coloured spiral pasta
6 tbsp salad seasoning mix
1 (16 oz) bottle Italian-style salad dressing
2 c cherry tomatoes, diced
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 red bell pepper, diced
½ yellow bell pepper, chopped
1 (2.25 oz) can black olives, chopped
Place a large pot with salted water on the stove and turn the heat to high. Allow the water to boil.
Add the pasta and cook for a few minutes until firm to bite or al dente. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process.
In a mixing bowl, add the Italian dressing and salad spice mix. Whisk until well mixed.
In another mixing bowl, add the pasta, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and olives. Stir until well mixed.
Pour the dressing on top of the salad and toss until well combined.
Place it inside the fridge to chill overnight.
Serve and enjoy!
