This is so easy to do and taste great. The dressing probably need some seasonings. I used the red bell pepper and green onion for me but for DH left out the green onion. Thanks cookiecutter :) Made for I recommend tag game

We liked this salad very much. I didn't put in onion or garlic but did add diced carrots. The dressing didn't leave a weird taste in your mouth like some other pasta salads. Will make again! Thanks for posting.
