    Katzen's Note:

    From Chowhound. The briny flavor of olives combines with creamy mozzarella and a tangy vinaigrette for a pasta salad that’s a shoo-in for everything from brown-bag lunches to summer picnics.

      This was very nice, but a bit salty for my taste with the salt in the dressing as well as the olives and parm (and I only used half the parm). After mixing up and tasting the salad I decided to add a couple handfuls of tomatoes as I had them to use, but also for the color they added and the help in cutting the saltiness they provided (next time I will probably add more tomatoes, I just used what I had). I found fresh mozzarella in tiny balls (called perlini) so didn't have to cut up the mozzarella. Otherwise made as written. Thanks for sharing!
