This was my mothers recipe. The dressing is sweet and tangy. Great flavor and not overwhelming. It makes a large batch so it's good to take to potlucks or barbeque parties.

A local restaurant does this pasta salad. I have been searching for the dressing recipe. I have done this salad a couple ways with great sucess. I will add kidney beans, carrots, broccoli and purple onion. Then sprinkle parmesan cheese on it. I love this recipe and thank you for posting it. :) I never add Accent as we don't eat food with MSG.

Ideas would include cherry tomatoes, green pepper and onion). This salad keeps well for several days in the fridge.
  2. Cooking time includes plenty of chilling time in the fridge.
