A family favorite for years. Think color and you will have a beautiful pasta salad. Serve over a bed of lettuce and you have a complete meal. Ingredient amounts can be modified to suit your taste. Toss in some cooked chicken, and VOILA, dinner is served!

This was a delicious salad and so colorfull. I cut the recipe in half since we were only two and it still made a whole lot. I followed the recipe except I didn't add any carrots or artichokes. This was a very filling salad with all those delicious ingredients. I made the salad the night before and then had it for lunch the next day. I just added extra dressing before serving. I had used Recipe #42613 for the dressing and it was really good. Thanks for a sharing a wonderful recipe Chicagoland Chef. This is another keeper.
