“This recipe has been very popular in my family!” says Tia Crosson of Las Vegas, Nevada. “It's super-easy and inexpensive to make. Everyone is always impressed.” The grapes and broccoli give a delightful twist to plain pasta salad.

    Absolutely loved it!!! Actually the whole family did and that doesn't happen often. It will be great for summer parties and picnics. As pasta is now coming in 12 oz pkgs. I only used a 12 oz. jar of coleslaw dressing(Marie's) and it was perfect . Thanks for sharing!!!
