Very versatile recipe. If you don't have something, then leave it out. If you have something the recipe doesn't call for, then add it. I recommend chopping the carrots really small, I think it's weird when you get a big crunchy carrot next to a soft noodle, but when the carrots are small the texture is just right.

I made this salad a couple of weeks ago to "test" it for our daughter's graduation party. I'm making it tomorrow for her party - absolutely wonderful. I added some pepperoni chunks, garlic and sliced black olives. This recipe did well to sit for about 8 hours before eating - would suggest eating it within 24 hours as all the ingredients tasted the same the next day. Really good salad - can't wait to have it again tomorrow!

This salad is really great. I followed it to a "T" except I misread the "Red Gold Basil, etc." and put in Rotel tomatoes with Green Chilis. It turned out fabulous. Everyone actually liked the bite the green chilis gave it. Who knew? I will try it the "right way" and see the difference.
