Fanstatic! I am always leary about pasta salads...not sure why, just am. Myself & my girls totally loved this recipe. I can't really say I did things differently, I did stick to the recipe, but as I only had Tomato & Basil Feta and a 4.25oz can chopped olives, I used them & removed the seeds from the tomatoes before chopping. Follow the recipe to a T. At 1st I thought the white vinegar was going to over power the ingredients but I was totally wrong. This recipe worked, there was a pleasant and nice zing of flavor & my use of the seasoned Feta I had...did enhance the recipe thoroughly. I seriously doubt, I will use plain feta in the recipe at all. I totally will make again and Will look for the Tri-colored cheese tortellini for the next round. Can't say anything bad about the recipe....and surprisingly..the walnuts work too! Go figure. TY TY!


I really enjoyed this salad. I used almonds instead of walnuts. I like the crunch it gave the salad. I only used 4 ounces of feta cheese. Next time I think I use less oil and vinegar.


Loved all the ingredients but it was way too much vinegar for us; if I try it again I definitely would reduce vinegar amount
