I created this to take to my DS & DDI's home for my contribution to Easter dinner. It turned out to be the tastiest pasta salad I had ever eaten. It was a big hit by all in attendance and many had 2nd servings in addition, even with all the other foods served. I decided it was too good not to share here, besides I want to remember how to make it again.
