This is one of the best tasting pasta salads I have ever had. My family and in-laws love it and I can never make enough. You can change or substitute the ingredients in the salad if you'd like to. This salad is best when prepared a day ahead.

This is a terrific recipe. I made it for a road trip to Phelps, Kentucky to visit my Aunt Norm and Uncle Opie. It traveled in a cooler from Niceville, Florida and we ate it for lunch at a rest stop on the way as well as sharing it with family when we got there. My Aunt says it would be a good dish to serve at the church my Uncle Opie pastors.

Liked this recipe a lot, found that for leftovers I needed to make more dressing.I think you could add any ingredients you like in a pasta salad.

Wow, this little gem of a recipe only has 2 reviews (’02 & ’09) and was “faceless” for at least 11 years. I’m glad I discovered it, as my family loved it. I subbed black beans for the kidney beans as we are not huge fans of them, but love black beans. Reading the ’09 review, they mentioned need extra dressing. I prepared 1 ½ batches of dressing BUT ONLY used 2/3 cup of sugar that 1 batch called for. It has a very slight tang, but we prefer that over sweet. This would be very easy to modify using veggies that your family enjoys. I made this for lunches this week (3 packers) and wanted something besides a mayo based dressing. I know I will be making this one again!
