Rainbow Pasta Salad IV

Oodles of noodles plus plenty of fresh veggies make this side dish a real meal-brightener. You can also add extra color by substituting red bell pepper for half of the green one. But the secret ingredient in this salad is actually sweetened condensed milk.


12 to 14 servings


1 package (1 pound) tricolor spiral pasta
2 medium carrots, shredded
1 large red onion, chopped
1 medium green pepper, chopped
1/2 teaspoon celery seed or 2 celery ribs, chopped
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup vinegar
1 cup mayonnaise
3/4 cup granulated (white) sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 to 1 teaspoon pepper


Cook pasta according to package directions. Rinse in cold water and drain; place in a large bowl. Add carrots, onion, green pepper and celery seed. In another bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Pour over pasta mixture and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
