Everyone needs a pasta fix every now and then. With Memorial Day coming up, salads are a mainstay for an outdoor BBQ. A great pasta salad makes for a perfect complement to whatever is sizzling on the grill.

1 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons milk
1 (.7 ounce) package dry Italian-style salad dressing mix
1 cup frozen petite peas, thawed
2 (2 ounce) cans sliced black olives
1 cup cubed Genoa salami
3/4 cup chopped green onions
3/4 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
