You will also need:
Medium-sized bowl
Cutting board and small, sharp knife

Note to the adult: Cook 1 cup (1/4 pound) pasta in boiling, salted water until tender. Drain it in a colander, rinse under cold running water, and drain again. Transfer to the medium-sized bowl.

2 cups cooked pasta (tubes, macaroni, small shells, or twists)
Half a red bell pepper, minced (cut in tiny pieces)
1 scallion, minced (cut in tiny pieces)
2 tablespoons chopped black olives
6 tablespoons Apple Juice Vinaigrette
Salt and pepper in shakers

1. You have the cooked pasta already in the bowl.

Add the bell pepper, scallion, and olives. Mix them in with the pasta, gently with a wooden spoon.

2. Shake the jar of Apple Juice Vinaigrette. Open it and measure out 6 tablespoons, one at a time, pouring each into the pasta.

Stir again with a wooden spoon.

3. Add a few shakes of salt and pepper, stir again, and serve warm or cool.
