This is a WONDERFUL pasta salad!!! All that I had was tri-color bowties, so I used them instead of the rotini. I also peeled and seeded my tomato, and seeded the cucumber also (personal preference). Other than that, the only thing I added was a dash of garlic powder. I am so happy to have found a new, yummy pasta salad!! I also think this would be good with diced green pepper and/or celery added to give it some crunch. Thank you so much for this FABULOUS recipe!! A keeper for sure!:) ~Manda

I'm wondering if I put in too much sugar, but this salad was sickening sweet... so much so, that I ended up rinsing off the salad so I could try to salvage it with another salad dressing. I did use red wine vinegar instead of white vinegar, and I don't know if that made a difference. But it was way too sweet for my taste!
