Although it is not my favorite take on cold noodle salad - this is a good recipe. The dressing resembles French Dressing. I added cubed turkey and shredded cheddar cheese so that I could make a complete meal for our Sunday supper. If your a fan of French Dressing - you might enjoy this unqiue salad. Glad we tried it!

I just made this salad--the dressing is wonderful! I am not a fan of Italian dressing so this will be a go-to dressing for me. I also heated the dressing as suggested by others. I added tomatoes and cucumbers because I had them in the refrigerator. I also added some mozzarella as someone else also suggested. What a wonderful make-ahead salad for all year around. I will use it again. Read More

I make a variation of this. Instead of onions & green peppers, I use red, yellow and orange sweet bell peppers, tomatoes, and cucumbers. Sometimes I add broccoli too. Also, the dressing should simmered over low heat so the sugar dissolves. Everyone I feed this to loves it! Read More

This was tasty but not spectacular. I added some crumbled bacon to it for some extra flavor and my family liked it a lot with that addition. Read More

This recipe is not to my liking -- so sugary and other than that no flavor. I ended up rinsing the pasta and starting over! Read More

This was delicious. I didn't have wine vinegar so I used apple cider vinegar. My kids aren't big on veggies in pasta salad so I just added bacon cheese and tomatoes. It was a huge hit. I did take an earlier recommendation and heated the oil sugar and vinegar just enough to melt the sugar and then added the ketchup. I added the bacon and cheese once the salad was cooled off. This is a keeper. Read More
