Long holiday weekend

I can hardly stand the wait!  I want to relax, party with my friends, clean my car, finish laying my mulch in my yard....I just want to get it started....Can't believe its only Thursday.  Ugh!  So I have about 3 parties to go to.  Here is my go to recipe.  Everyone asks for the recipe after they eat it!

Cool Cucumber Pasta Salad

  • 8 ounces uncooked penne pasta
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 medium cucumbers, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1-1/2 cups Domino® or C&H® Granulated Pure Cane Sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • Directions:

    Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and rinse in cold water. Place pasta in a large bowl; stir in the oil, cucumbers and onion.     In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the remaining ingredients; shake well. Pour over salad; toss to coat. Cover and chill for 4 hours, stirring occasionally. Serve with a slotted spoon. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 8-10 servings
