  • 1/2 cup recent parsley, chopped

Italian Pasta Salad Dressing:

  • 1 1/2 cups olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar (white vinegar or pink wine vinegar work)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons coarse sea salt (sure, tablespoons – see notes!)

How To Make The Finest Pasta Salad

  1. Prepare dinner pasta in accordance with bundle instructions, in salted water for extra taste. Permit to chill barely and toss with a bit of oil to stop sticking.
  2. Mix up the dressing, or shake collectively in a jar.
  3. Toss all components collectively! I like to make use of about three-fourths of the dressing, after which I save the remainder of the dressing so as to add to my leftovers.
  4. Preserve within the fridge for 2-3 days. I believe it really tastes finest the day AFTER you make it.
