The perfect addition for a backyard luau! This salad is our best seller and it’s easy to see why. With mandarin oranges, pineapple chunks, diced avocado and red onion, the flavor is a little sweet and a little savory. Top it off with our easy-to-make poppy seed dressing that’s included and your friends will be begging you for the recipe!

    Wonderful Pasta Salad

    Best pasta salad EVER!! Always make this for our Women’s salad dinners and always take home an empty dish. My husband really likes it also. I also leave out the onion. Gives it a much milder flavor❤❤

    Hawaiian Pasta Salad – picked this up over the weekend and had it tonight for supper. What a great and easy to make meal. Very filling and tasty. We will be looking for more of your flavored pasta mixes to try for our meals

    I buy several of these at a time and make them for friends who are homebound because of an illness, surgery, or whatever. They always ask me for the recipe. We love this salad and always add the avocados, and silvered almonds. Tasty!

  5. Pamela

    I would love to see the sauce packet sold as a bottled seasoning or seasoning packets for purchase. Originally purchased a couple of these pasta salad packs at the Christmas Gift Show. I was originally attracted by the adorable tiny olive oil bottle. The pasta salad is outstanding! We use canned chicken breast and everyone fights over the leftovers.

    Fabulous complement to the hamburgers and hot dogs we had on the 4th of July. Leftovers were perfect for lunch the next day. Rave reviews from the entire family.

    I served this for a Christmas lunch. It was delicious and everyone raved about it. The store didn’t have any ripe avocados, so I added a sliced kiwi instead, along with some toasted slivered almonds. I always omit onions because my husband doesn’t like them and it was still wonderful.
