Pasta Salad with Italian Dressing- Total Elimination Diet – Reintroduction Phase

This is pretty good.  Not gonna lie.  I’m a huge fan of pasta salads.  This could use some cheese (feta anyone?), but we’ll get there some day.

– Pasta Salad –

• 1/2 cup pepperoni, sliced
• 1/2 cup salami, sliced
• 1 cup chicken, cooked and cubed
• 1 cup cauliflower florets
• 1 cup cucumber, cubed
• 1 cup onion, diced
• 1 red pepper, diced
• 1 green pepper, diced
• 1 lb. brown rice pasta, cooked according to package direction
• 1-1.5 cups Italian Dressing

1) Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.  Drizzle Italian Dressing on top, and mix to fully combine.
2) Chill for 1 hour before serving.

– Italian Dressing –

• 1/2 tsp. Basil, dried
• 1 tsp. Garlic powder
• 1 tsp. Onion powder
• 1.5 tsp. Oregano, dried
• 1.5 tsp. Parsley, dried
• 1/4 tsp. Thyme, dried
• 1/2 tsp. Black pepper, ground
• 2 tsp. Salt
• 1 tsp. Honey
• 1 c. Olive oil
• 1/3 c. Red wine vinegar
• 1/4 c. White wine vinegar
• 3 Tbsp. Water

1) Combine all ingredients in jar (I used a mason jar), cover tightly and shake well to combine.
2) Note: This dressing will keep in the fridge for about 2 weeks, but the oil and vinegar will separate. Just pull it out and let it sit for a few minutes to come to room temperature and then shake it really well to mix it up again.

This is adapted from this recipe, and this recipe, and this recipe to meet the requirements of the TED Reintroduction Phase.
