Perfect Harvest Pasta Salad

Pasta Salad is a perfect summer treat.  Its so versatile and compliments any summer meal.   It's not only cool and refreshing it can be served as a quick lunch, or added to a weekend BBQ with friends.  Add tuna or chopped chicken for a different taste.  Use your favorite paste weather it be rigatoni, ziti or macaroni.  When you add your own grown vegetables it becomes something special.  This recipe will serve six to eight guests.

3 Cups Cooked Pasta (your choice)
1/2 Cup Yellow Bell Pepper
1/2 Cup Tomato
1/2 Cup Cucumber
1/4 Cup Onion
1/2 Cup Hickory Bacon Salad Dressing (more if you wish)
Salt and Pepper

Cook pasta according to directions.  Drain and rinse well with cold water setting aside.  Dice all vegetables, do not chop.  Toss all vegetables together in a mixing bowl.  Once well blended add pasta stirring lightly.  Add salad dressing, salt and pepper.  Once dressing is evenly distributed store in an air tight container allowing flavors to join.
