This is very good. The only thing that prevented me from giving it 5 stars was that I added to the basic recipe. My suggestions: add something green to the mix, I added broccoli flowerets, I al...

This is one of the best pasta salads I have ever had. I use turkey pepperoni instead of the salami to cut back on a few calories. I use an Italian seasoning packet mixed with olive oil for more ...

This is a great recipe! I made a few changes by adding a can of quartered artichoke hearts, some steamed broccoli using pepperoni instead of the salami, a bottled vingarette because I'm lazy, an...

I made this for my sister's baby shower and it was a big hit. Many people asked me for the recipe. We made it all the night before, except added the cheese chunks in the morning so they wouldn...

I liked this alot. I made it just like the recipe calls for. I can't stand on here when people change the ingredients and then give it a lower rating. I will make this again and again. Thanks ...

Very good. Just a couple notes: 1. this makes a TON of salad. So consider yourself warned! 2. It's a very heavy salad, so I freshened it up with lots of (nearly) raw broccoli. It made it for me.

A great recipe for vinegar lovers! I added some basil at the end - thought it needed just a little something more. I'm keeping this on hand and definitely making it again. Thanks Kathy!
