I've found that I can't go wrong taking this colorful bean and pasta salad to a potluck, patio party or picnic. It is easy to put together ahead of time...and the flavors blend as the salad chills. -Cheryl Maczko Arthurdale, West Virginia

"Just made this salad, it's very good. However, I reduced salt to 1/2 teaspoon because feta is very salty and it was just right. I also reduced the olive oil to less than 1/4 cup and it didn't affect the end result."
