Acini di pepe pasta isn't always easy to find, keep looking. My local Acme market had Gia Russa pasta. Good Luck!
Made this to take to a picnic, tasted after making it & definitely will make it again! Delicious!!!
I made the frogs eye salad and loved it!! Many years later, now I cannot find Acini di pepe pasta! Can anyone help me out! Thank you so much!
I left out the whipped topping since I did not have any, and used Miracle Whip as a substitution. The salad was excellent, and everyone at the reunion loved it. Wonderful recipe!
I want to make this one at least once a year from now on!!!
