"This is a quick pasta salad that does not require a dressing of some sort. A change of pace for sure. Will make it again for sure."

"Wonderful, quick pasta salad. I keep most of the ingredients on hand so that made it a cinch. I have had more flavorful pasta salads but this was nice, light, and not overpowering. Will definitely make again."

"This pasta salad is mild and delicious! It is a nice departure from other pasta salads that have a heavy Italian dressing flavor. It goes well with a sandwich, or burger. I have served it with bbq pulled pork sandwiches and the mildness of this recipe did not compete with the flavor of the pork."
