Pasta Salad with Eggless Mayonnaise Dressing

>>  Saturday, June 25, 2016

For the second day of  BM#65under Kid's Delight themed on Soups and Salads, I have yet another of my long standing pending dish, that finally saw the daylight. Meaning I cooked it as hot or cold as this morning. And it found its way here. However, this recipe has been on my mind for so long.

When we dine out for Buffet, the line array of Salads always caught my eye, though I never ever venture to pick any. I mostly have a long look at each of the dishes lined up for salads. My daughter picks up pasta, while Peddu picks up carrots or cucumbers and Chinnu always picks up boiled lentils. Their choices are very clear. They do not deter from this line of action.

I always check their plates and silently move on to starters. I am not big on salads or soups. On the table when the soups are served, if it happens to be sweet corn soup I might try, else mostly give a miss. Kids love nonveg soup and they give a try too. Given this scenario that I am not so keen and, kids are specific on their choices, this theme was tough for me.

Still, I remembered this cold Pasta Salad and wanted to make it. I made this for Konda and the leftovers found its way to my box as well. Must say it tasted so good. Didn't realize it will be so creamy. Next time will be making it including some lentils in it and more chilled.

Sending these to Archana who is hosting this month's Kid's Delight Edition, themed on Soups and Salads
