Presented in a sand pail, this festive salad features a zesty dressing that's simple to stir together. An assortment of pasta shapes resembles seashells while red and yellow peppers add color and crunch. For an extra-special touch, you could cut the peppers with a small star-shaped cookie cutter.


  • 3 cups uncooked medium shell, spiral and/or wagon wheel pasta
  • 1/3 cup vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper
  • 1 medium sweet yellow pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions


  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions until tender; drain and rinse in cold water. Place in a large bowl; set aside. In a jar with tight-fitting lid, combine vinegar, oil and seasonings; shake well. Add peppers, onions and dressing to pasta; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
