Wholesome Pasta Salad & Sour Cream (Video Recipe)

by Neetu

I developed a liking for salads long back, so I use to try out different salad recipes and various combinations on dressings. I recently bought this ready made thousand island dressing during a trip to supermarket, but I didn’t want to use this as it for my salad, so thought of combining it with sour cream and it worked really well. Checkout the video to make fresh “SOUR CREAM” at home. Uummmmm well, I am thinking to make Thousand Island Dressing also at home next time.
