I love this salad. I have made it several times varying the vegetables each time. I have even left out the ham and cheese and it's still great! I also use the colored rotini pasta.

This is a great pasta salad. I leave out the green olives because I find them overwhelming. I also use Mozzerella cubes instead of shredded just for the texture change.

Very Very VERY good and so easy! My picky boyfriend loved it. I will definitely make again.

I brought this pasta salad to a family gathering and everyone loved it!! They polished it off!! My brother-in-law (who is a very picky eater) even tried it and said it was great!
