Phenomenal salad!!! We had this as our main dish but would be delicious with BBQ meat. I used regular penne pasta to which I added thinly sliced red onions, cherry tomatoes, celery stalk and green olives. I also added blanched green beans and broccoli. Used brie cheese. For the dressing I reduced sugar to 33g and oil to 87ml. Turned out really well. Thanks for posting.

I sauteed the vegetables in some of the olive oil. There is no need to add more than a 1/4 cup of sugar. This pasta salad is outstanding. Thank you.

I made this today exactly as required in the recipe, using fresh asparagus, broccoli, red peppers and olives. I opted to use mild cheddar cheese, which I cut into small cubes rather than shredding it. I also didn't have any Mozzarella so I didn't use that. I thought the dressing was very reminiscent of honey mustard. I would like to make this again using a larger variety of vegetables. Thanks for posting.

This salad was very good with a nice colour. I did find it a tiny bit too sweet. It could be just my taste. The next time I make it I will decrease the sugar to 1/2 cup. Thanks
