    Mediterranean Pasta Salad

    The dressing for this salad was created when I ran out of Italian and mixed in some French dressing. Great combo!

    NOTES : For a main dish, serve on a bed of lettuce and/or sprouts. Garnish with tomatoes, hard cooked eggs, or whatever you have on hand. Made with rotini pasta, it becomes my daughter's favorite: Wiggle Worm Salad.
