    Cheri B's Note:

    Large bowl full of Delicious Italian pasta salad. This salad has lots of YUM to it. I'm ask for this recipe all the time, and can only say well this is what I start with, them add more seasoning to my own taste. But this is a good start on the spices, and ingredients are always subject to change to your own taste.
