I thought this was a very good salad, with some changes to the dressing. Personally I omitted the olives, not an olive fan. I used rotini pasta (14.5oz box) instead of the penne and used a small Walla Walla onion. The changes I made to the dressing was to add 1/3 cup seasoned rice vinegar, 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice, a little over 1/2 tsp salt and 1 tsp crushed garlic, 1 1/2 tsp sweet basil and some generous shakes of parsley. I would highly recommend letting it marinate overnight before eating it to allow the flavors to blend better (I made it last night and it tasted way better this afternoon). I also added a little crumbled goat cheese to my bowl and a few more shakes of rice vinegar after serving myself. Might need to up the vinegar a little more next time. With all those changes it was excellent.
