      Love this salad! I reduced the recipe down to about 1/4 of the recipe as I was preparing it only for myself. The only things I changed was the style of pasta and cheese. I used mini shells and shredded cheese as this is what I had on hand. I don't think the pasta made a difference in the taste, but the cheese probably did. Next time I will definitely make sure I have block cheese and cut it into cubes. Block cheese holds the flavor of the cheese better than pre-shredded. I think the pops of cubed cheese with the other flavors would be even more delicious. I used locally canned sweet spicy dill pickles and the spiciness in the pickle gave you a tickle of heat. This is great just by the recipe, but it lends itself to personal options of flavor, such as tomatoes or avocado. Thanks Dave#7!
