Made the recipe exactly as written except for adding a little bit of chopped red bell pepper for color. I thought the red wine vinegar in the dressing would brighten up the mayo dressing, but tasting it after it chilled, I thought it was a little bland. I then added a little bit of dijon mustard which I think really improved this salad. This is easy, and I will make again, but it will be with the addition of the dijon.

I, too, used a little more pasta -- one pound worked for me -- and used regular mayo (that's all I had on hand). We found that it needed a ton of salt, especially after sitting in the fridge. This makes a ton of salad! A great potluck dish. Thanks, Jennifer.
