This salad was delicious! I did make a few pretty big changes out of necessity. I figured I would still go ahead and give this salad a review even with my changes, because I think it is the sort of salad that is very adaptable and comes out great regardless. I used garlic powder and dried basil rather than the fresh varieties. For the frozen mixed vegetables, I used frozen peas. I also doubled the amount of pasta relative to all of the other ingredients. It is a delicious salad that tastes exactly like something you would get in a deli or nice sandwich shop. I love the dressing; it's got loads of flavor, and is just a bit tart. Thanks for the great recipe!
