Ranch Vermicelli Pasta Salad Recipe
The last few months I've been sorting through tons of recipes I've cut from magazines or written down over the years. This has been a huge project and I'm still not finished! Can we recipe hoarder??
This is one of those recipes I came across when organizing. I remember either my Mom or older sister making this recipe when I was younger and I loved it. I had to make it and see if it's as good as I remembered it! It did turn out as good as I remembered!! This salad makes a huge batch and would be great for a potluck or BBQ! I also love that there's no mayo, making it a little healthier for you!
