Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great base recipe for creamy pasta salad The title says it all...this is a great base for a creamy pasta salad recipe. I personally used 1/2 c mayo and 1/2 c sour cream with a whole packet of ranch mix. I also add diced salami or ham, cauliflower, carrots etc. If you are using fresh broccoli and cauliflower I would recommend a quick steam and blanche to help those who have trouble digesting those veggies when they are raw. Have a blessed day and enjoy.
