The first time I tasted this delicious salad was at my wedding, and I recall, even in the blur of that day, the recipe was in high demand. That was years ago and I'm still asked to bring it to cookouts and parties! —Sarah Ryan, Geneva, Ohio

"Have made a salad like this for years. A little Parmesan & cubed mozzarella cheese gives it a little creaminess. So good on a hot day, can be made well in advance placing the pasta in just before serving."

"Loved this! To me, it has all the essential components of a good pasta salad, although I did use cheddar rather than provolone. Will definitely make it again!"

"We really liked it. I had a half of a cucumber so I added that and didn't have a green bell pepper so I used a Hatch green chili and I thought it was still yummy."

"I thought this was really good. At first I thought it was okay, but the more I ate it my opinion changed. Was a different type pasta salad than I was use to I guess, lol"

"This is my go-to summer salad and I'm always asked for the recipe when I take it to get togethers. I make it as written other then I omit the olives. Love the dressing, it's a perfect blend of flavors."
