A WONDERFUL flavorful salad….a big hit!
1 box Betty Crocker Suddenly Salad Classic pasta salad mix
1/2 cup Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing
1/4 cup sour cream
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice (I used fresh)
2 cups of baby spinach leaves, torn or can use broccoli florets
1 or 2 cups grape tomatoes sliced in half
1 whole cucumber sliced and halved
1 cup julienne (matchstick-cut) carrots (they come in a bag all done!)
1 tablespoons fresh or 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
Empty Pasta mix (from Suddenly Salad box) into 3-quart saucepan 2/3 full of boiling water. Gently boil uncovered 12 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Drain pasta; rinse with cold water. Shake to drain well.
In medium bowl, stir 1/2 the contents of seasoning mix (from Suddenly Salad box), the dressing, 1/4 cup sour cream and lemon juice until blended. (I used only 1/2 the packet of seasoning because it was so strong)
Stir in only 1/2 of the dressing mix into the pasta and remaining ingredients. Cover; refrigerate.
