Beans will bring bravos when you present this pleasant pasta and veggie salad. "I first made it for friends who are very good cooks. When it was gone, they asked where the second bowl was," chuckles Lenore Adams of Dayton, Ohio. "Among my make-ahead favorites, it's a big hit every time I serve it."

MY REVIEW

I might make this again...probably not but if I did I would either eliminate the olives or use less and slice them rather than have them whole...they just seem to be a bit overwhelming to me. This wasn't bad but I'm sure there are some other options that would be better so next time I'm thinking of something like this for a side dish I'll try something new.

This is one of my favorite salads to make, especially in the summer. The italian dressing and shredded parmesan cheese along with the oregano really make it taste special. My husband doesn't really like broccoli but doesn't mind it in this delicious salad.
