This is a make the day before you serve salad, or at a minimum, prepare in the morning for serving with the evening meal, the flavors need time to blend. I made this on 26 Dec 2017, tasted 6 hours later for dinner, outstanding, very well liked by my Thai wife as well.

Ingredients
For the Salad
For the Dressing
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Heat a pot of salted water to boiling, add the pasta and cook until tender, drain well.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, mix together the Dressing ingredients in a good sized mixing bowl.
  3. After the pasta is well drained and cooled a bit, add it to the dressing along with the rest of the Salad ingredients except the cheese. Toss well to coat everything.
  4. Now add the cheese and fold that, then cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight.
  5. Serve as a side, or in my opinion, as a main dish as that is what I will probably do.
Recipe Notes

I cannot price pepperoni at this time, I used a 150 gram pack of smoked ham for 90 Baht. For the Feta, that is 150 Baht for 275 grams, use half the package (75 Baht), cut the block in half and crumble that for right about a cup. Based on the Feta and smoked ham, for 4 servings, this is about $1.22 per serving.

Variants: 1. In place of pepperoni, use thin sliced smoked ham. 2. Use what you have, like a whole bell pepper instead of cup, or a package of pepperoni or smoked ham, like a cup or so, etc.

This sounds really good! The added cheese and the Italian dressing sound great. This is a good base that you can easily change to make it your own, or to make it different each time you prepare it. Link to the shortcut is listed in the Recipe Notes section.

Instructions
  1. Cook the pasta in a pot of lightly salted water until tender, then cook for another 1-2 minutes, then drain and rinse under cold water. Place in a large bowl.
  2. Whisk together the Ranch dressing, sugar, vinegar, salt and pepper.
  3. To the pasta, add the eggs, peas, spring onion, pickles, celery, and cheese and mix, then add the dressing and mix to coat everything, refrigerate for several hours prior to serving.
Recipe Notes

The cheese, if using 1 cup will be about 90 Baht, for 6 servings, this is about 44 cents per serving. If using 2 cups of cheese, figure this is about 88 cents per serving.

Variants: change the celery to a bell pepper, change the sweet pickles to dill pickles, change the cheese to Swiss, change the Ranch dressing to Bleu cheese dressing, etc.
