"This salad gets better the longer sits. It's very addicting and takes a lot of self control to stop eating. Believe me I've seen it happen at many parties."

Delicious! I made this for a picnic and used farfelle (bowtie) pasta. Next time I'll add a little less olive oil - maybe 1/4 cup.

This was an easy recipe full of fresh flavors. I used fusilli pasta just as a personal preference. The whole thing went together quickly and easily. Thanks, AR, for another hit!
