Creamy cold pasta salad

For this post recipe I prepared for you my favorite creamy codl pasta salad recipe. This cold pasta salad is perfect side dish or just main dish which can be eaten through the day like in my case 😀

My grandma used to make this salad for me for birthdays, some holidays and special occasions. I would eat only this salad the whole time. It is so delicious!

This creamy cold salad consists of couple of vegetables like tomatoes, peppers, pickles, but you can add whichever vegetables you like. I added some Swiss ham, cheese, corn and everything was combined with tasty mayo and sour cream. I like to add lemon juice because I like when the food is little bit more sour. It is more fresh and easier to eat.

It can be eaten like a side dish or just alone. It is very fatty because of the mayo and the cream but unbelievable delicious! Perfect creamy cold pasta salad! You can use whichever pasta you like. Usually, people use traditional macaroni pasta, but this time I used shell pasta for a change. LOVE to experimenting with the food.
