My husband and son detested pasta salad before I came up with this one. But there were no leftovers the very first time I served this—now it's a summertime family favorite! Filled with fresh, crunchy radishes and celery, juicy tomatoes and cucumbers, this nutritious recipe is one to try with your gang. —Melody Loyd, Parowan, Utah

"Good pasta salad. Vegetables blended in and hardly realized we were eating them. I left out the olives but otherwise made as written."

"Great salad for a summer dinner - went perfectly with our grilled port chops. I left out the radishes, as no one in my family cares for them, but followed the rest of the recipe as written. Will make again!"

"Similar to my Daughter-in-Law's recipe. She uses Ken's Lite Italian and adds chopped mini bologna sticks."

"Probably the best pasta salad I've ever made. Added a grilled chicken breast to make it into a meal. Used Manchego cheese (available at Costco) instead of Swiss for extra flavor. Next time, I will kick it up another notch by adding either toasted slivered almonds, or cashew halves or pistachios."

"Great side dish for a barbeque, although I added a bit of Salad Supreme spice. Yum! Guests and family really enjoyed it.

"Great for a hot day like today. I only gave it four stars, because I didn't use the Italian dressing, I used Kraft's Coleslaw dressing, we don't care for italian dressing, and added smoked salmon to it. Next time I will use ranch. Use quite a bit more dressing than was called for."
