The recipe sounds great...one question though and maybe I overlooked the answer. When do you add the other 3 vegetables? I have made pasta salads before, but the method is different.

Absolutely delicious! I used garlic and herb dressing mix, and added salami, mushrooms and fresh diced tomatoes. This disappeared in a big hurry!

This is a great recipe. You can add or subtract ingredients to suit your taste. I use zesty Italian dressing to speed things up. I've also added ham and mini pepperoni occasionally. It never sits for very long, my husband devours it!!
