"This is a quick pasta salad that does not require a dressing of some sort. A change of pace for sure. Will make it again for sure."

"Wonderful, quick pasta salad. I keep most of the ingredients on hand so that made it a cinch. I have had more flavorful pasta salads but this was nice, light, and not overpowering. Will definitely make again."

Reviewed Nov. 5, 2009

"This pasta salad is mild and delicious! It is a nice departure from other pasta salads that have a heavy Italian dressing flavor. It goes well with a sandwich, or burger. I have served it with BBQ pulled pork sandwiches and the mildness of this recipe did not compete with the flavor of the pork."
