This is great Pasta Salad. I just made a few minor changes. I didn't have any red onion, so instead I added some chives from my garden. Also along with the green pepper I added about 1/2 of each a yellow and a red bell pepper. I didn't have any cherry tomatoes, so I seeded and diced two nice, big tomatoes. My changes didn't seem to hurt the end result. The Salad was delicious! Thanks for posting this keeper.

This is my favorite "take-along" recipe! It's so fast and easy to make, and it is DELICIOUS! It makes a pretty large dish. If I'm making it for two, I cut the recipe in half. Otherwise, I make the whole thing, because people can't get enough of it at cookouts. Thanks!
