"This has been made by my family for years; not sure where it came from. Great for cookouts or picnics since there is no mayo. Best if made the day before to let flavors blend. Serve with your favorite chicken, pork, or beef as a refreshing side dish. You can substitute red, yellow, or orange peppers for the green to add extra color to this dish."

Great summer salad. I made this as written, only using different pasta as I didn't have small seashells. I had beer stein pasta, so that is what I used. You would never guess that the dressin...

I normally do not review recipes that I change, however, the basic ingredients for the dressing portion I did not change. The sugar and vinegar quantities are correct and are required to balance...

the dressing was too sweet. I probably would not make this again.

This is a great and easy pasta salad recipe. I do not put in pimento peppers because I never have them on hand. I do add pepperoni and cheese to it. THis is definitely a crowd pleaser! I am alwa...

I tried this recipe on Sunday, and while the vegan friend I made it for liked it, I was NOT impressed at all. The sauce was overpowering with the vinegar (I don't like vinegar much as it is) and...
