Broccoli Pasta Salad


This salad is so good, if I do say so myself. I used broccoli and green onions fresh from my garden. Don't you just love garden time?? This is such a good side dish or if you are like me it is dinner. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek.

1 pound pasta-boiled al dente
1 large head broccoli-broke into florets
4 green onions-chopped
1 cup salted sunflower seeds
1 pound sharp cheddar-shredded
1/2 pound purple grapes-cut in half
1 bottle Cole Slaw dressing-I use Hidden Valley brand
Salt and Pepper to taste

Combine all of the ingredients and stir until well coated, now refrigerate for a couple of hours. I always save a little bit of dressing to stir in right before serving.
