Yum! This is delicious. I usually wait until the hot part of summer to make pasta salads, but it's good today, too. I love the dressing - I used red wine vinegar in mine. I added tomato, cucumber and a little radish, but left out the parsley, only because I couldn't get any when I went shopping. Next time I'll be sure to add it. Thank you very much for this lovely recipe.ff
