MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 4, 2013

I made this for the local 4-H potluck. Everyone liked it and I had no leftovers to bring home. The regular pasta is easy exchanged for gluten free pasta.

My 14-year-old daughter was the one who originally found this recipe and decided to try it. It's very good and very easy to make.

Love this salad I see making this often. I used Hormel Real Bacon bits and Light Ranch dressing to lower the calories and fat which took this down to only 152 calories per serving. The little bit of left overs made a great lunch the next day
