This is a delicious recipe that can be used as a main dish as well as a side dish. I thought I was the only one who added horseradish sauce to pasta/potato salads. Gives them a little zip. I added some finely chopped red bell peppers for color, and used thinly sliced green onions.

Use green onion, then add a little raw white sweet corn, some chunks of avocado, and some halved cherrie tomatoes. It brings this salad to a whole new level...

Delicious!!! Since I am a WW I lightened it up with lite sour cream and lite mayo. I figured only 6 pts a serving so makes an awesome lunch.

I loved this pasta salad! I only gave it 4 stars because my hubby wasn't a fan. But that's okay...more for me!!!

Delicious & refreshing! I used green onion instead of the grated onion. Also used less horseradish because it was a tad strong. But I will definitely make this again! Perfect for a hot summer night! Also skipped the red lettuce.

This salad is delicious! It's perfect for dinner on hot summer nights. I was wary of the horseradish sauce at first, but it added a really nice flavor to the dressing without making it too hot. I used small pacific salad shrimp, and I skipped the red lettuce leaves. I'll be making this quite a few more times this summer!

This is an awesome summer salad. So good for a warm summer night for dinner. I did cut the horseradish sauce down to 1/8 cup, because we prefer a hint of horseradish instead of a bold taste. Will be adding this to my quick summer dinner recipe list.

We all loved this pasta salad. Everyone went back for seconds, and thirds! Delicious. I did not have seasoned salt, so I used garlic salt. The dressing turned out so tasty, that we all dipped cucumbers into it as I was boiling the pasta! I think I'll start using the dressing as a vegetable dip! I will definitely make this again! Thanks so much!
