      An absolutely delicious salad! I made it yesterday for a 4th of July picnic, and my family loved it. The oil and seasonings added a light flavoring, allowing most of the taste to come from the fresh veggies and pasta. I chose to use fresh basil leaves and elbow macaroni, and I swapped the avocado for a cucumber and included a small can of sliced black olives with jalapeno peppers. I also used pepper jack cheddar cheese, which added a delightful spiciness to the salad. Thanks for sharing this recipe; I will use it again!

      This recipe works just great. I used penne rigate pasta because I couldn't find the rotini, Cantal cheese in place of the cheddar, and opted for the fresh basil. My family gobbled it up. I served them bbq chicken too, but this seems hearty enough for a vegetarian meal. I liked that all it has for dressing is olive oil letting the yummy veggies shine through.

      A great quick-and-easy pasta salad for lunch or a light dinner. I definitely added the balsamic vinegar - about 1 T. for each 2 T. of oil. Also great with mozzarella cheese chunks!
