Broccoli Pasta Salad


Super Easy, Super Delicious! I love "cool" side dishes when the temperatures start to rise. This one is perfect as a side dish to your meal or great to take to a potluck dinner or barbecue.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Pasta, such as Rotini or Bowtie
  • 2 c Fresh Broccoli Florets 
  • 1/2 Onion, diced
  • 1/4 c Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 c Sour Cream
  • 1/4 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp Creole Mustard
  • 1 tsp White Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • Cracked Black Pepper
  • 1.5 - 3 tsp Pickled Diced Jalapenos, depending on how spicy you like it
  • 1 tsp Dried Dill
  • 1/4 tsp Sugar, granulated

Bring enough water to a boil to cook pasta. When water is boiling, add pasta and cook for 10 minutes. The last 5 minutes of cooking throw your broccoli florets in with the pasta to cook.

While the pasta and broccoli cook, in a large mixing bowl add all wet ingredients, onion, jalapenos and seasonings. Mix well.

Once pasta and broccoli are done, drain well and rinse with cool water until it's cooled. Make sure it drains well. 

Add to the dressing mixture in the mixing bowl and stir to combine. 

You can serve immediately or chill in the refrigerator. If you chill it in the fridge, take it out 15 to 20 minutes before serving.
