I boiled what pasta I had on hand I had two half full boxes of different types of pasta so I used those up.
Put in a ton of veggies like broccoli, corn, onions, green onions, cherry tomatoes and snap peas. There's also eggs, cheese and diced chicken in there.
The dressing consists of dukes mayo and sweet vidalia onion dressing. Then I seasoned it and this is what you get.
As for the veggies I added what I had on hand you can put whatever you like in it.
"Salad" has a fairly loose definition, here the pasta has been tossed with salad dressing (probably mayo) and served cold is a common pasta salad. I'd just say cold pasta.
A pasta salad imo. is mostly salad with some pasta. But sure, you could call it whatever is the most convenient.
