Emily’s Graduation Pasta Salad

6 C. vegetable pasta or tortini, cooked
1 cucumber, diced
2 C. celery, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
2 tsp. salt
2 dashes black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 T. basil
2 T. parsley flakes
1 T. dill weed
2 C. vegetable oil
1 1/2 C. cider vinegar
1 1/2 C. sugar
Cherry tomatoes

Mix oil, vinegar and sugar. Pour over the remaining ingredients that have been combined. Mix well. This can marinate in refrigerator 2 or 3 days before serving. To serve, add cherry tomatoes for color.

NOTE: This makes a lot of dressing. Only put on half the amount and let sit for a day to see if you need more dressing. The remaining dressing can be used on a tossed salad.
