Cold Pasta Salad Recipes Without Meat

I am looking for some great meatless, cold pasta salads. I am not looking for exotic recipes. I would like ones that are simply made, like the ones our mothers and grandmothers made. I sure would love to hear from you. Thank you and God Bless.

I use black and green olives, some baby carrots sliced maybe some vidala onion and celery. Use mayo with a little Italian dressing. Comes out yummy!

We enjoy cold pasta salad with diced tomatoes, cukes, green or red peppers, onions and mayo. I use Hellman's because everyone likes the flavor of it. Sometimes I add diced celery if I have any in the fridge along with some diced hard boiled eggs. I always use the eggs. Nora

I make my pasta salad dressing with Hellemans, prepared yellow mustard, celery seed and finely chopped either green, red or sweet Vidella onions. I also sometimes add seeded tomatoes(I like to use yellow and red ones for color)I seed them so they don't make the salad too runny, celery and finely minced garlic. Be aware that when you add other veggies(other than onion and celery) the salad may not keep as well. Also you can combine your mayo with either plain or a savoury yogurt, like herb; but I find, again, it does keep as well and goes runny.

3/4 cup sliced green onions

1 (2-1/4oz) can sliced black olives

3/4 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup plus 2 TBLS hot or mild salsa

2 TBLS fresh cilantro.

My bunch likes cold tri-color corkscrew pasta with diced tomatoes, scallions and cubed lowfat mozzarella--and balsamic vinegar, to taste, tossed through. Could do the same thing with mayo instead of the vinegar ( we prefer Hellmann's, too) but on those days you're looking for a lighter meal, the balsamic's better for the waistline!
