Keto Summer Picnic Pasta Salad

This salad uses Italian dressing instead of mayonnaise, giving it a slightly tangy flavor. The recipe makes about 6 servings and approximately 3g net carbs per serving. It’s even better the next day after the dressing has soaked in the noodles. The olives are optional, so we topped our individual serving with a few. It’s so delicious!
