      When I'm making pasta salad, especially during grilling season, this is my go-to recipe. So good, I could eat this every week during the summer months! I use sprial pasta instead of bow tie, and omit the cheese. Instead, I add a can of rinsed and drained red kidney beans. Thank you for posting this here.

      Had thought about making this for a potluck we were to attend, but instead it was made sooner than expected & shared with a neighbor couple as well as my vegetarian son & DIL! Everyone loved this absolutely wonderful salad ~ So full of flavor, so satisfying! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed in the current Best of 2011 recipe tagging event]

      This salad was excellent! The flavours of the veggies with the pasta and poppy seeds were so good! Ive never had a pasta salad quite like this before, but I loved it! :) Very, very yummy and also fit for company as it is a rather elegant version.
      I didnt have any cucumber in the house, so just used red bell pepper instead, which was nice, too. I thought the full amount of dressing would be too much, so I reduced the vinegar and oil a tad and the sugar quite a bit, which was perfect for us.
      THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us, Crafty Lady!
