This was a great pasta salad, with a very nice flavor combination - all our favorites. I made this lighter by omitting the cheese and using less oil and prosciutto. I also used Crispy Crumbled Prosciutto for this recipe. Served about 4-5 (as the sole entree).
LOVED IT! Boomette, you've got a winner here. The combination of flavors is right on. The only change I made was to double the cheese and omit the yellow pepper which picky hubby won't eat. I made the salad up early in the morning knowing that I would be home late tonight. It was so good that I had a serving for breakfast :lol: I preferred it at room temperature, is that what tempered means? Edited to say that OF THE 350 RECIPES I REVIEWED IN 2008, THIS HAS GONE INTO MY TOP 20 FAVORITES COOKBOOK.
This is so good. I made this today mainly because of the short time it takes to make. I have been on the run all day with brief stops at home so I made this at about noon and had it for dinner. I had to male a couple of small changes like using regular mozzarella, a chopped regular tomato and freeze dried basil and oregano(in lesser amounts than ask for). It was very much enjoyed as supper's main dish. It's very full flavored and completely yummy!
I would give this a 4 if you ate it right after you made it, but after the salad mellowed in the fridge for a day the flavor was fantastic. I agree also that it does taste better at room temp. with a bit of the chill taken off.
this is a full flavored delicious salad however I some changes and amount adjustment probably too many to mention, I really think this salad benefits from chilling time however it is also very good at room temperature, this is great using Italian dry salami in place of prosciutto and that is one of the many changes I made, thanks for sharing Booms!
Delightful summer salad! I made as directed with the exception of 1 sub - I used turkey pepperoni in place of the prosciutto as it is what I had on hand. We loved the combination of fresh flavors and the ease of preparation - this is a keeper I will make again! Keep these great recipes coming Boomette!!!
It is a hot August in Texas today and I thought this cool, fresh salad would hit the spot for dinner tonight. We loved the flavors and textures of everything in this dish. I bet it tastes even better once the flavors blend overnight. The only change I made was to use turkey pepperoni in place of the prosciutto. Delicious! Thanks so much, Boomette1.
