Delicious, and it makes an excellent presentation. I added crumbled feta cheese and cut back on the amount of dressing.

I'm giving this less stars simply because I didnt enjoy the vegetable choices.

Amazing Recipe! I have made this for years. The only thing I do different is add 1/2 cup FRESHLY grated parmesan cheese! Very yummy!

I too have been making this recipe for years with the salad supreme it just isn't the same with out that. I also add sliced pepperoni and cubed mozzerella and fat free dressing, cuts down on the fat so I can add the pepperoni and cheese.

This recipe was really delicious. So much so that I am making it a staple of my diet. I wish I would have taken the suggestions of others though to use the salad sensations or whatnot. I felt it needed more tang or zest. I will put fewer onions in as well as they were a bit overpowering. Overall, it was delicious and nutritious and a definite keeper with just a few changes.

This is a wonderfull basic pasta salad recipe! Use the veggies that you and your family like. The same goes for the salad dressing, try a sundried tomato, or greek style one. For a bit more substanitial salad, add your favorite diced cooked meats and cheese. The possibilites are endless.

Excellent. I used some apple cider vinegar and olive oil. Will make this again when I have guests.

I loved this pasta salad! It was crunchy (which I love), and flavorful, and easy to make. I added pepperoni also.
