Pasta Salad to Beat the Blues Dish

Large pot
5 cups rotini pasta
1 tsp sea salt
Cold water
1 large bowl
5 cups mayonnaise
1 cup spicy mustard
2 Tbsp black pepper
1 Tbsp black peppercorns
1 Tbsp garlic salt
1 package dry Italian dressing mix
2 cups smoked salmon
2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 Tbsp hot sauce
Favorite crackers
White wine

In a large pot, combine rotini pasta, sea salt and enough cold water to cover the pasta. Cook the pasta over “Medium” heat until the water starts to boil and then let the pasta cook for at least 15 minutes. Next, reduce the heat to “Low” and cook for an additional 10 minutes. Drain the pasta into a strainer but do not wash the pasta. Sit the pasta to the side and let it cool. While the pasta is cooling, in a large bowl, combine mayonnaise, spicy mustard, black pepper, black peppercorns and garlic salt. Stir the ingredients thoroughly and then blend 1 package of dry Italian dressing mix and smoked salmon into the mixture. Stir the ingredients until the dressing mix and salmon is well blended into the mixture. Lastly, combine shredded sharp cheese, hot sauce and the cool pasta into the mixture. Stir the salad until it is well blended – about 8 minutes and then put the pasta salad in your freezer for 15 minutes. Serve this treat with your favorite crackers and plenty of white wine!! Enjoy!!
