Ranch dressing is the mild coating for this pleasant pasta salad chock-full of crunchy cucumber, onion and green peas. "Wherever I take it, I'm always asked for the recipe," remarks Paula Ishii of Ralston, Nebraska.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 5, 2011

This is a nice simple creamy salad. It was a cinch to make and tasted great. It may need a touch more in the way of seasonings, or maybe I need a stronger flavored ranch dressing, but the flavor combination is still great. It also made alot!!!!! Great for a family gathering.
