Wonderful light salad. Dressing completely absorbed after refrigeration. Family loved it.

My family loves this salad and I'm always asked to share the recipe. It makes a nice light lunch to bring to work too.

The correct amount of vinegar is 1/4 cup, as now stated in the recipe here. We apologize for any confusion.Taste of Home Test Kitchen

As a change from the regular pasta salad, this one is really good! I get asked to make this often! It's a keeper!

One thing though...in the original recipe in the taste of home cookbook 2001 it calls for 1/4 cup vinegar. 1/2 would be too much.
