Marie's Pasta Salad

This amazingly delicious recipe comes to us via my mother in law, Marie.  Pasta salad is one of the best meals for summer time.  When my mother in law brought this to me on my birthday, she topped with some tuna that had been mixed with mayo - and that was even better!  You should try it.  Really.  It's yummy.

Marie's Pasta Salad
Just cook, drain and rinse the pasta.  Add whatever veggies you want and toss in this dressing:
2/3-1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 Tbsp salt
1/2cup vinegar
1/4 tsp onion juice or 1/2cup finely chopped onion
1 cup salad oil
1/2 Tbsp celery seed
The recipe suggests marinating it all together overnight so the flavors can mix.  Then, if you choose to use fresh tomatoes, add them just before serving so that they don't dilute the dressing.

THIS RECIPE IS AMAZING! I've been trying to get it from Marie for so long and by trying I mean keep meaning to call and then always forgetting. I'm glad you posted it!

P.S. OJ or Onion, really?
