Noodle Salad for a Potluck

This noodle salad recipe is great for bringing to any occasion when you need to bring a dish to pass. I rarely take any home and always have people asking for the leftovers. Any recipe that is used often is a keeper and this is in the pack. The hardest part is cooking the noodles. Dicing the veggies and other ingredients can be done while the pasta is cooking.

Creamy Salad Dressing

If you are looking for a salad dressing that is a versatile salad dressing that has many great uses, this one is for you. Here is the recipe for that Ultimate Creamy Salad Dressing. The dressing can be used for this noodle salad and coleslaw.

Bonus Recipe

I used to work in a restaurant and the coleslaw was a staple recipe that was used everyday. (shredded cabbage, salt, pepper, and the ultimate creamy salad dressing). 

Variations

It is a very versatile recipe. You could add ham and diced cheese with the onion and celery for another unique taste. This is the way that my husband likes it.

There are also a number of ways to make the ultimate salad dressing. My grandmother did not use sugar, instead, she used the juice of mandarin oranges. I have also tried pineapple juice. Here are those great recipes too.

Note: if you add a lot of extra ingredients to this salad, I would increase the amount of sauce as it will become dry if you don’t.
