I was going to post a recipe for this same salad but did a search first. This one is so close to the one my family loves that I decided just to add the only three differences unstead of making a seperate post. I add cubed cucumber and thinly sliced celery to mine and I don't use broccoli. It is such a fresh tasting salad, and is the only pasta salad my daughter will eat.

We enjoyed this salad. I wonder how turkey pepperoni would taste? Think I'll try it with the turkey next time.

I was looking for a simple pasta salad recipe to take to a family gathering and this one fit the bill. This is very basic and leaves a lot of room to add in your favorite ingredients. Next time I plan on adding some chunks of cheese, cucumbers, and olives -- but it's good as is. Thanks for sharing!

Very tasty and so easy! Pleased the crowd. I did add quite a bit of garlic salt and salad seasoning as my store brand dressing was a bit bland. Next time I'll be sure to get the good stuff.

I made this recipe for a bridal shower and everyone there wanted the recipe! I also added diced cucumbers and celery like Karen from Colorado suggested. When I make it again I think I might add Feta cheese. YUM!

This is an awesome recipe! I made it for our company picnic this past weekend--doubled the recipe and threw in a few more things like cucumber, black olive, yellow and red peppers, a bit of salt (kosher) and some freshly ground pepper. A HUGE hit...now I am having to print of extras of the recipe to share. Thanks!

Good, but it made a ton salad. We served at a family reunion of 20 people. It was easy to prepare and everyone loved it, but we had lots left over. I would definately prepare this again but on much smaller scale.
