This light pasta salad recipe! With homemade clothes, this recipe becomes the next level. A combination of ranch and mayonnaise is the pasta dressing for this recipe. The ranch flashes while it is nice and creamy with the mayonnaise! As with most recipes, I always use a quick batch of my favorite homemade ranching dressing, as you can wear a bottled ranch dressing. A couple more minutes, but surely worth the time. This makes it the perfect side dish, as you can easily make and bring it with you in advance.
