This was a great salad lunch. I used veggie spirals and added some onion and salt as well. I also used 1/2 mayo and 1/2 cup miracle whip for personal preference. I didn't have any cubed cheddar so I used shredded. We enjoyed this for lunch today and will have enough leftover to eat with our dinner tonight. Thanks so much for sharing.

A taste sensation! Loved all components of this wonderful, full of taste cooling salad. I used my fresh grape tomatoes from the garden, fresh parsley, and fresh basil. I picked some fresh succulent broccoli off the broccoli plant and this was just a hit, and will make this for "Saturday Lunch" at the farm. Added a bit of onion and salt. Just great, and I thank you so much, SweetsLady! Made for *Pet Parade* July 2008.

I made this tonight as a side for dinner, and plan to have the leftovers tomorrow for lunch. Apart from being delicious, I really appreciate being able to make a salad ahead without it going soggy, and I know I will depend on this recipe often in the summer. I made two changes...no Miracle Whip, so I used mayonnaise and added a pinch of sugar, as I believe that Miracle Whip is sweeter, and I added a chopped green onion to increase the herbal notes. Thanks for submitting this delightful salad.

YUMMY! It was a little "mayo-e" for me, but still VERY good. I think next time I'll add some paprika too. I used whole wheat veggie tri-color pasta and mild cheddar cheese cubes (they didn't have sharp). Bet it will taste even better tomorrow! Thanks for posting this keeper! It's easy, quick and filling!

My daughter couldn't get enough of this salad. I liked the flavor from the fresh parsley. Thank you SweetsLady.

This was good but next time I would use mayo and not Miracle Whip. I didn't care for the taste of the Miracle Whip.

Perfect for lunch or a side dish for supper. We don't care for Miracle Whip so I used Hellman's which worked out perfectly for us. We particularly like the cubed cheese in this (something I've never tried before...very good addition). Not only a great tasting pasta salad but it makes a very nice presentation with all the colors too. Thanks so much for sharing, SweetsLady.

I am somewhat picky about pasta salads, and there is almost always something "wrong" with every recipe I have tried. However, I can say that this recipe makes one delicious salad! I especially like how colorful it is. :)

This is a great salad to serve at a women's luncheon, and you can more macaroni to the dish without increasing the anything else.
