MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 3, 2013

This is my favorite recipe for pasta salad. I am asked to bring it to many picnics, parties, etc. During the summer when basil is growing in my garden I like to use that instead of the dried. Either way it turns out great every time. This is probably one of my favorite Taste of Home recipes!

Very good. I wouldn't change anything about the dressing, but the add-ins you could change to your taste! I didn't add onion, added pickles instead because I LOVE them.
