One of my go to salads is super easy but I don't really use a recipe and it can be tweaked to accomodate anyone's tastes... It's a cold pasta salad and here's what I use.
1 box of whole wheat pasta
1 can of black olives
1 jar of pickled vegetables, minus the pickling liquid (cauliflower, carrots, peppers, etc.)
Fat free Zesty Italian dressing
Cook the pasta to your preferred texture, pour a bit of the dressing on it to ensure it doesn't stick together and let cool. Add the olives and vegetables and as much of the dressing as you'd like. I usually save a bit of the dressing to add right before serving as the pasta will absorb much of it initially. I've also been known to add pepperoni to the salad or cucumbers, feta cheese, or just about anything that tickles my fancy at the time or that I have in the cupboard. Hope this helps and good luck!
