We love our creamy salads here in the South. I am no exception. There is just something about a salad coated in a mayonnaise based dressing. It’s comforting and refreshing all at the same time. Add the taste of ranch dressing and I’m sold!
This Ranch Pasta Salad came about one day as I was searching for a way to use the rest of my favorite Buttermilk Garlic Ranch Dressing. It’s got that kick of garlic with the cool taste of a buttermilk ranch. Yum! Make up a batch for a dinner salad this week and then use the leftovers for this zesty Ranch Pasta Salad!
