Excellent, easy warm day meal. Have made several times, rarely have any leftovers. Made last nite for son, daughter-in-law and 2 grandsons; doubled the recipe and there was not enough left over for my lunch the next day! I roasted a seasoned boneless chicken breast and added that to make a one dish meal on a hot, humid night. Also added diced carrot and pepper to get more vegetables. Only other change was to omit olives this time, as son doesn't like them. Usually use them, though. This is a real keeper.

Excellent dish. I have served it at various occasions and I always receive excellent reviews. It seem like I can never fix enough.

This is the second time I am submitting a review. This is the third time today that a review did not take. Some did and some didn't. I saved them up to do at one time. This was very good. We enjoyed it and will make it again. Thanks for the recipe.

Good pasta salad. Vegetables blended in and hardly realized we were eating them. I left out the olives but otherwise made as written.

Great salad for a summer dinner - went perfectly with our grilled port chops. I left out the radishes, as no one in my family cares for them, but followed the rest of the recipe as written. Will make again!

Similar to my Daughter-in-Law's recipe. She uses Ken's Lite Italian and adds chopped mini bologna sticks.

Probably the best pasta salad I've ever made. Added a grilled chicken breast to make it into a meal. Used Manchego cheese (available at Costco) instead of Swiss for extra flavor. Next time, I will kick it up another notch by adding either toasted slivered almonds, or cashew halves or pistachios.

Great side dish for a barbeque, although I added a bit of Salad Supreme spice. Yum! Guests and family really enjoyed it.(Edited for grammatical errors)
