"I make this easy salad for lots of potlucks and always come home with an empty dish," writes Ellie Marsh from Lewistown, Pennsylvania. Crisp bacon, chopped tomato and fresh greens give a packaged pasta salad mix terrific flavor.
I created this salad when my husband and I were looking for something quick, yet different. The blend of flavors is wonderful, and I make it often. It's simply the best! —Paula Marchesi, Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania

The homemade dressing really makes this simple, quick-to-fix salad shine. You get so much flavor without a whole lot of work. Making the dressing in advance and refrigerating will intensify the flavor. Adding blue cheese crumbles is a great option as well.
“This simple pasta salad is a favorite of everyone I know! I like to keep the ingredients in separate containers in the fridge. Just toss together for one or more servings whenever needed.” —Mary Sigfusson, Mankato, Minnesota
