I too have been making this recipe for years with the salad supreme it just isn't the same with out that. I also add sliced pepperoni and cubed mozzerella and fat free dressing cuts down on the fat so I can add the pepperoni and cheese.
This recipe was really delicious. So much so that I am making it a staple of my diet. I wish I would have taken the suggestions of others though to use the salad sensations or whatnot. I felt it needed more tang or zest. I will put fewer onions in as well as they were a bit overpowering. Overall it was delicious and nutritious and a definite keeper with just a few changes.
This is a wonderfull basic pasta salad recipe! Use the veggies that you and your family like. The same goes for the salad dressing try a sundried tomato or greek style one. For a bit more substanitial salad add your favorite diced cooked meats and cheese. The possibilites are endless.
Easily adaptable to your preferences. I use cherry tomatoes since I don't like raw tomatoes very much. I also omit the cucumbers but use both red and green peppers. I also top with a healthy sprinkle of fresh parm cheese right before serving. Very refreshing and yummy. One tip: blanche the broccoli; it keeps it crispy under the dressing. this is great as a side dish for turkey burgers or italian sausage on a roll. Of course it's good all on it's own as well for a quick meal.
