Dad's Best-Dressed Pasta Salad
  • 12  ounces  wagon wheel, bow tie, or other specialty-shaped pasta
  • 1/3  cup  salad oil
  • 1/4  cup  catsup
  • 1/4  cup  mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 3  tablespoons  cider vinegar
  • 1  teaspoon  sugar
  • 1/2  teaspoon  paprika
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  pepper
  • 6  small green onions
  • 1 15  ounce can  red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2  large stalks celery, thinly sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 1  medium red sweet pepper, seeded and cut into 1/2-inch squares

1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, place oil, catsup, mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, paprika, salt, and pepper in a screw-top jar. Cover and shake until smooth. Set aside.

2. Drain the cooked pasta in a large colander and rinse under cold water until cool; set aside. Snip off the root ends from the green onions and about 2 inches of the green tops; leave some of the green tops attached. Snip trimmed onions crosswise into thin slices.

3. In a large bowl gently toss together cooked pasta, kidney beans, celery, red pepper, and green onions. Pour on dressing. Toss until pasta is well coated. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
