Refreshing Summer Pasta Salad

I love this refreshing pasta salad anytime of year, but especially in the warm summer months.

8 cups cooked rotini pasta (I use Smart pasta)
1 red pepper, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 apple, cored, and chopped
2 carrots, peeled and shredded
1/2 English cucumber, chopped
1 can mandarin oranges with juice
Italian salad dressing, to taste

Throw all your ingredients into a large bowl and toss. Refrigerate for a couple of hours before serving.


  1. Oh, I love the idea of Mandarin oranges in a pasta salad. This looks like a great summer dish.

  2. I will definitely try this at the next bbq!

  3. Looks very nummy! I love mandarin oranges in salads too :)
