The appearance, texture and taste of this salad are pure SUMMER! I love that because of the ingredients, you don't have to worry so much about it sitting outside on the buffet table on a hot day. Easy, yummy and unique!
Although it is not my favorite take on cold noodle salad - this is a good recipe. The dressing resembles French Dressing. I added cubed turkey and shredded cheddar cheese so that I could make a complete meal for our Sunday supper. If your a fan of French Dressing - you might enjoy this unqiue salad. Glad we tried it!
I just made this salad--the dressing is wonderful! I am not a fan of Italian dressing, so this will be a go-to dressing for me. I also heated the dressing, as suggested by others. I added tomatoes and cucumbers because I had them in the refrigerator. I also added some mozzarella as someone else also suggested. What a wonderful make-ahead salad for all year around. I will use it again.
I make a variation of this. Instead of onions & green peppers, I use red, yellow and orange sweet bell peppers, tomatoes, and cucumbers. Sometimes I add broccoli too. Also, the dressing should simmered over low heat so the sugar dissolves. Everyone I feed this to loves it!
this recipe was great. I added cherry tomatoes, black olives halved and chunks of mozarella cheese for extra flavor.
This was tasty, but not spectacular. I added some crumbled bacon to it for some extra flavor and my family liked it a lot with that addition.
This is a good pasta salad, but you need to like your dressing a little on the sweeter side. I subbed seashell pasta as that is what I had on hand. I also added some red & orange peppers along with the green to add color since my pasta was not rainbow pasta like the recipe calls for. I do believe this is a recipe that is better if made the day ahead so that the flavors have time to meld. The dressing is sweet and if I make it again, I will cut the sugar in half and drop the vegetable oil down to 1/3 cup, but keep everything else the same. I’m always looking for new pasta salads to try and this was good, although sweet as written.
This recipe is not to my liking -- so sugary and other than that, no flavor. I ended up rinsing the pasta and starting over!
