Great salad. It was a nice change from the usual pasta salads. Used whole wheat spiral pasta. The family really enjoyed it. I will be making this again as it is also very healthy. Thanks Audrey for sharing this recipe.
A lovely colorful and easy salad to make. I made this as one of three salads for my bbq yesterday and everyone enjoyed it. The salsa gave it extra zip and flavour. I used a Balsamic vinaigrette. It actually makes a good size salad which goes a long way with a crowd. Thanks for the recipe, Audrey.
