OHMYGOD This is sooo good! Let me tell you about a few changes I made here- not to offend but to suit my own preferences. I chose to make my own dressing using a packet of Good Seasons which eliminated the need for the clove of garlic and the salt. I used black olives in place of the brocolli (because I hate the way that vinegar tends to "cook" the brocolli) also I wanted chunks of mozarella to marinate in the dressing so I used the Polly-O string cheese. I had to taste the stuff- just couldn't wait for the fridge time and it was awesome! I hope I can keep my paws out of it until my boyfriend gets home from work! I left the parmesan out until serving time because I know it would absorb too much of the dressing! So glad I doubled the recipe! I will be making this again...and again...

I mixed everything together and chilled it. i used seeded plum tomatoes instead of cherry and increased the garlic. Next time I will use salami instead of the pepperoni.

I originally made this recipe and was disappointed. I found that you need to double the amount of dressing, otherwise the pasta is very dry and tastless. Also, making the pasta and dressing the day before gives it extra flavor. My family just eats it up, and I always get requests for the recipe. It is really delicious and perfect for hot days when mayonnaise might go bad.

I am happy to have found this quick and yummy pasta salad. Two friends of mine, who tasted it, asked me for the recipe and made it the next day! However I modified the recipe somewhat (partly in error as I was looking simultaneously at another similar recipe), and well, what do you know, it worked, so....here's what I did - used a 1/4 cup light-tasting olive oil instead of the 1/2 cup vegetable oil, added some chopped bell pepper along with the broccoli, used regular chopped tomatoes instead of the cherry tomatoes, omitted the pepperoni and basil, and marinated the veggies in the dressing while the pasta cooked, adding the cheeses once the pasta was cooled to room temp. I then refrigerated the prepared salad in the refrigerator.

We love this salad. I made a few changes: replaced veggie oil with olive oil and reduced it to 1/3 cup, used whole wheat rotini, and replaced the pepperoni with hard salami.

Another allrecipes success story...this was great! Used a little more macaroni than called for and added 1/2 chopped green bell pepper and 1/2 chopped red bell pepper and let them "chill" with noodle/vinegar mixture. We loved it and wished I would have doubled the recipe! Thanks for the tasty summer treat!

I really enjoyed this salad and so did hubby. I took it to a 7/4 bbq. Not sure how others liked it. I'll make it again anyway!!

My Husband Loved This! He says he hates olives in everything, but he liked them in this salad. I offered to take them out the next time i made it and he said "No, its yummy the way it is"! Only thing is i leave out the cherry tomatoes because I don't like them. Sometimes I substitute the pepperoni with salami from the deli case, depends whats on sale. Really a great easy and delicious recipe.
