This is the most delicious salad I've had in a long time. The dressing is just fabulous and is included with the recipe. The taste is very fresh. This is perfect for lunch, or a potluck.

First of all, I halved the recipe. I could not find whole wheat pasta shells, but wanted to keep with the healthy intent, so I substituted whole wheat rotini. I could not find turkey pepperoni, then realized I don't really like pepperoni, so I left it out. Everything else was as written. It was very tasty and would be great for a potluck or cookout. I'm sure I will be enjoying this frequently. Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag Game.
