- Chicken, beef, or pork

- Beef roast
Fusilli, rotini, ditalini, and cavatappi are the usual kinds of pasta used for pasta salad because of their shape and ability to stand up to the stirring process.
You should rinse pasta before making pasta salad to prevent the addition of excess starch to the pasta salad and encourage the sauce to stick to the pasta.
The pasta in pasta salad can dry out and may stick together as it sits in the fridge.
Be sure to rinse your pasta after draining so the sauce can coat the noodles. Be sure you make enough creamy salad base to thoroughly coat the pasta.
This pasta salad is even better the next day, so feel free to make it in advance and serve chilled.
