Tricolor Pasta Salad is an easy make-ahead recipe.

Tricolor Pasta Salad

The classic pasta salad gets a visual lift with tricolor rotini, the colors playing off the carrots and green bell pepper. The dressing is sweet yet piquant, with enough zing to encourage seconds.

Makes 16 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound tricolor rotini, cooked and drained according to package directions
  • 2 cups shredded carrots
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt
