I really think the green sliced olives in a pasta salad make the salad just awesome.  I make my pasta salad very similar to the recipe posted...It does go well  with any meat.

This is sooo good! I make this recipe at least once a week! I use "Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing",in place of the Italian Dressing,

Thanks for a great recipe
