"This salad is fabulous. I took it to a salad supper and everyone loved it. I made a couple of changes. I substituted shredded carrots for the olives, mixed up a dry zesty Italian dressing mix, and added toasted, sliced almonds. I highly recommend this recipe.

"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"
