Pasta-ish salad

Someone I could mention used up all the white beans for his pot-luck salad, so I made a pasta-ish salad.

  1. Cook 2 cups of pasta (makes 4 cups). I used radiatori.
  2. Chop an onion and a wedge of cabbage and a couple of carrots.
  3. Open a can of red kidney beans and rinse.
  4. When the pasta is cooked, drain . If you’re in a hurry, rinse with cold water to cool off.
  5. Mix  a couple of large globs of mayonnaise, a glug of milk, and a couple of squirts of ranch dressing, and a small squirt of lemon juice.
  6. Mix the pasta with the veggies; add the dressing and mix in.
  7. Salt if you like. I threw in a pinch of half-salt (half NaCl, half KCl).
  8. Feel free to add any other veggies that you like: celery, radishes, green onions, etc.
  9. If none of your guests is allergic to nuts, you can add in a handful of chopped walnuts.
  10. Mix well and serve.

This had a nice, delicate flavour and people said they liked it.
