      I've been meaning to review this for more than a year..... People love this pasta salad. the thing that makes it different is that it doesn't use "itlalian dressing"(those are good too). One note: if making a day ahead, don't put in the hard boiled eggs until the morning of the party, or the yolks will completely disintegrate. I have subbed red sweet pepper for the pimento- subbed ready made relish for the chopped pickle every time, and used just a touch of garlic powder in lieu of the real thing. Still turned out great. you'll get lots of compliments with this one.

      My Gosh, Girl, this is a great little pasta salad! I used bread and butter pickles, chopped, the juice of the pickles, and omitted the green pepper. Came out lovely! Went really well with bar-b-q'd ribs! Thanks for sharing, evelyn, I'll be making this often. Laudee
