This is a great make-ahead zesty picnic dish that will please EVERYONE and go with any MEAT DISH! You can alter the ingredients to your personal taste--but here's the basics. I found it in Taste of Home and made a few alterations to our tastes.

I don't drink so I couldn't follow step one. LOL This does take some preparation time but what anti-pasta salad doesn't. This was a fantastic side dish. I highly recommend this pasta salad for any group gathering. It makes a lot. Served it with Recipe #82875 Horseradish Burgers.
