Served this to my son's High School Varsity Soccer the night before a game in order to give them lots of "carbs". I doubled the recipe and the bowl came back empty. I added extra of each of the veggies because that's what our family enjoys. With or without the extra veggies it is the creamy and robust dressing that makes the difference in this salad. Thanks for a winner Susan Lee from the Concordia Lutheran High School Cadets!

Oh my goodness! This is the BEST pasta salad I have ever eaten. It's so creamy and delicious! I just ate some that a neighbor made for a graduation party, and I just had to have the recipe. I plan to make this a lot in the future!
