Smoked Turkey Pasta Salad

I made a large version of this colorful pasta salad for a Super Bowl party, and all my guests loved it. They wanted to know what I put in it to make it taste so good. —Ana Colon, Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin

    I really liked this, although I had to make some changes to the dressing to make it tastier. I used miracle whip and I had to quadruple the recipe for my large family. Everyone loved it.
