This salad gets better the longer sits. It's very addicting and takes a lot of self control to stop eating. Believe me I've seen it happen at many parties.

This was an easy recipe full of fresh flavors. I used fusilli pasta just as a personal preference. The whole thing went together quickly and easily. Thanks AR for another hit! Read More
