MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 19, 2012

Maybe it was the way I made it. I didn't put olives in and used low fat mayo, but this did not taste good.

This salad is good, but you can easily get more "mileage" out of it by adding an additional cup of pasta. The dressing ingredients yield plenty. And to make it easier on yourself, use a whole red pepper and a whole small onion. I omitted the dill weed & olives.

Awesome salad! The dressing was cool and mild. Made a few alterations: swapped cucumber for zucchini, used green onion, used a whole red pepper and took out the olives. Will make often!

MY REVIEW

This is delicious. I added an extra cup of pasta because it seemed like there was too much dressing.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 16, 2008

This is delish! I pared down the ingredients for one, as my husband won't eat pasta salad. I made some minor changes to use what what I had on hand and seasoned to taste. I used green olives, green pepper and added some pimento.
