Need to make pasta salad for 14 adults + 12 kids (who probably won't eat it). This is what I have in house (do not want to run to store again!)
fresh broccoli
fresh carrots
fresh celery
2 fresh corn cobs
frozen peas
jar roasted peppers
tomotoes, basil, parsley, chives in garden
EEOV (1/4 cup maybe), reg OV, balasmic vinegar and red wine vinegar (not sure how fresh??)
bottle of light ranch dressing

Can I just throw some veg in with pasta and ranch dressing? Not sure how the dressing will be with them - would have preferred oil based one... Any ideas? TIA
Oops - also have mayo, dijon mustard, soy sauce and bunch of dried herbs....

sounds great.

I'd lightly steam the broccoli and carrots unless you want to cut them very, very small.

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?
