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

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

"Use Gazebo Room Greek salad dressing. Much tastier."

MY REVIEW

"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."
