MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 8, 2010

Have made this several times in just the past few weeks. Rave reviews by everyone - even in-laws! =) Quick to make, simple steps (I don't layer it, I just toss it all), perfect blend of mild flavors. And the best part - this salad keeps! It stays nice for several days with no soggy lettuce! Wow - what a salad! =)

By the way, I used mini bow tie pasta and it was very good. It layered nicely!
