Recipe by Klantz
"At the last minute, I was told to bring something for a potluck at work. Not having the time to go shopping, I used whatever I had on hand and used a dressing my mother always used on her potato salad. The salad was a hit at work. Takes a little time to make but is well worth the effort."

This was a nice pasta salad. I skipped the olives and artichokes per personal preference, and the eggs because I'm lazy ;) I thought it might pack a bit more of a punch given the dressing ingredients, but nothing really made it stand out from the usual pasta salad fare. It's a nice pasta salad, for sure, but not one I can say for sure I'd make again (though it's certainly worth YOU giving it a try; it's good stuff!). THANKS for the recipe!
