numbero dos of the salads promised...

this is the other salad that i made sunday. it is creamy, fresh & delicious! it is super simple as well, so that is great!
side note- when i was in high school my dad owned a dance studio. we practically lived there! Kenny Roger's Roasters was right next door & we ate there a lot!!! not only because it was close & we liked the food, but i had a huge crush on a kid that worked there:) anywhoo... this salad is quite similar to a salad they served there that i always got. maybe that's why i like it.?.

{austin's creamy dill pasta salad}

1- 16 oz. bag of pasta, cooked & drained- i prefer bowtie, cork screw or penne
2 roma tomatoes, chopped
1/2 red onion, sliced
1 cucumber, peeled, seeded & chopped
1/2 cup sliced carrots- i bought them pre-cut

1 cup prepared homemade ranch
1/2 cup italian dressing
2 TBSP dill weed

in a small bowl, mix together dressings with dill. set aside while you chop veggies. place all other ingredients into a large bowl & toss until combined. add dressing & mix well. refrigerate until ready to use. serve chilled or at room temperature.
