I thought this salad was very good although I ended up with way too much dressing. I added more pasta - all in all about 8 oz. which made it much better. Read More

I found this to be much too salty. It could also use some yellow peppers for color and to add to texture and reduce the saltiness in every bite. Read More

This was very good. I did make some changes though. I used almost three times the amount of pasta called for and it was not too much. Also I used only about half the dressing. I used white onion too. Very good flavor. Read More

I didnt leave myself enough time to let the salad set for a couple of hours and it was definitely better the next day. I used olive oil and it tasted too strong when we ate it just after making it but you couldnt tell the next day. Also I ended up making the dressing in a blender and that was a lot easier. I'd definitely make this again...but ahead of time. Read More

I have used this recipe over a year and a half and love it! I make it all kinds of ways...somtimes we use dry salamie rather than ham but I always use all my favorite Italian veggies.(olives really make it prety) I have changed the dessing a tad less sugar less oil and I add a teaspoon of dill and a teaspoon of Italian Seasonings and also add pepper. It is a nice pot-luck dish! Read More
