Italian Roast Beef Pasta Salad

I love this salad! In my mind it is perfect anytime – but especially for summer! Besides pasta, it’s packed with a rainbow of fresh flavors like tomatoes, celery, mushrooms, and cucumbers,

yummy thin-sliced roast-beef strips

and is dressed with a light (easy) homemade red wine dressing. 

 

So good! And really very easy! Here’s the recipe:
Italian Roast Beef Pasta Salad
Dressing:
1/3 cup oil, I like canola
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
3 drops hot pepper sauce, such as Louisiana Hot Sauce (add more if you like it spicy)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon basil leaves
1 clove garlic, minced
Salad:
6 oz. linguine – broke into thirds
2 cups thin sliced roast beef strips
1-2 celery stalks, diced (@ 1 cup)
2 medium tomatoes, diced
1 cucumber, diced
2 (2.5 oz.) jars sliced mushrooms
Here’s what you’ll do:
1. Cook and drain pasta as directed (al dente). Rinse with cold water to prevent sticking. 
2. Mix all dressing ingredients together. Set aside.
3. Place all veggies, roast beef, and pasta in a large baggie.

4. After stirring well, pour dressing over salad. Seal the bag and turn to coat.

5. Refrigerate several hours, or overnight.

Delish! If you’re looking for other great pasta salad recipes, you may like this Greek Chicken Pasta Salad.
