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.
