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
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
