This recipe is very good. The longer it marinates the better. I added mozzarella cheese and diced peppercinis. I will use this over and over.

This was so good! I have to be honest though. I was looking for a pasta salad when I had come across this recipe so I added pasta to it and I also added some pepperocini juice from the jar of pepperocini's. It was so delicious. We loved it. I know that this recipe would also be just as delicious if I made it without the pasta which I am going to do as well. Thank you for posting a wonderful recipe. I am going to be making this one often.
