Vegetable Pasta Salad Recipe

This light, multicolored salad is an original. When I serve it at potlucks, I', always asked for the recipe. It's also a standby for the "snowbirds" who gather with us in Arizona each winter. —Kathy Crow, Cordova, Alaska

"This makes a huge salad so is great to take to a potluck or serve as a side or main dish. I've made it over and over again."

"I love cold pasta salad and this one is a standout. Next time I make it I'm going to try doubling the dressing ingredients. Adding leftover ham makes it a great main dish salad! Make it earlier in the day and just bring it out at dinnertime!"
