Our favorite combination of vegetables for this salad is cubed zucchini, red pepper, cherry tomatoes, red onion and sliced Baby Bella mushrooms. We don't care for Wish-Bone dressing as it's really salty for us, I usually make an italian dressing from scratch. This makes a GREAT all in one meal for summer if you throw in leftover rotisserie chicken or sliced pepperoni. The longer this salad sits, the better it gets--I usually like to make it the night before, toss the ingredients in a big bowl with the dressing and then toss it again right before serving.



I thought this deserved a rating, and it's very similar to my own version of the "suddenly salad" classic pasta salad. Even better, we can use our favorite italian dressings or homemade and tweaked a bit. The best part is that the fresh veggies in it are adaptable and taste so much better than the dehydrated stuff in the boxed pastas.



I used half Wish-bone Italian dressing and half mayonnaise, as suggested in the footnotes. We liked the creamy texture and subtle taste.
