Ingredients
  Rotini pasta 12 Ounce (Uncooked Multicolored, You May Choose Any Salad-Size Pasta, Such As Macaroni, Bowties, Shells, Ziti, Etc.)
  Salt 1 Tablespoon
  Chopped curly parsley/Flat leaf parsley 2 Tablespoon (Fresh)
  Purple onion 1⁄2 Small, thinly sliced (Cut The Slices Into Arcs, If Necessary, To Make Them Fork-Friendly)
  Feta cheese/Blue cheese 2 1⁄2 Ounce, crumbled
  Bottled italian salad dressing 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Mayonnaise 2 Tablespoon
Directions

In a large pot, bring about 2 inches of water to a boil. Add 1 tablespoon salt and 12 ounces of rainbow rotini pasta. Cook the pasta, stirring occasionally, for 8 minutes. Drain through a colander, and then rinse with cold water, so that the cooked pasta is evenly cooled. Add 2 tablespoons chopped curly parsley, ½ purple onion (cut into thin rings), 2 ½ ounces crumbled feta cheese, ¾ cup bottled Italian salad dressing, and 2 tablespoons mayonnaise. Fold salad gently, until completely combined. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for several hours for best flavor. Spoon onto salad plates or small salad bowls, when ready to serve. Enjoy!!! --Betty
