Reviews for Deli-Style Pasta Salad
"I think the marinade is good but next time might add 3/4 t. Of sugar to it because it was a bit tart."
"Our family loves this pasta salad! I've been making it since it first came out years ago! It's nice because I add lots of vegetables and adapt it to the tastes of whoever I'm serving it to. I totally love the dressing and use lots of fresh herbs in the summer."
"It was good, very average, but not outstanding compared to many other pasta recipes that I have tried from this site."
"This was good, but not really the type of pasta salad we like. We ate it up, though! I added some ranch with the leftovers and that was pretty tasty!"
"Turned out great"
"This was extremely good! It is a little spicy with the raw garlic and onion, but a "keeper" for our family! I added about 6 fresh basil leaves, cut up when I tossed it the first time."
