I know, I know we all have our own favorite pasta salad. They are like, well, I can't say here what they are like, but you get the idea (we all have em, and we all think ours is the greatest!). What I love about them is that we can add and take away and make them our own. After years of making & tweaking pasta salad, I found one I love. This is good cold, but I prefer it to be at room temperature. As a variation, I replace the balsamic with lemon juice and some zest and replace with salami with chunked rotisserie chicken and use parmesan instead of salt and add lots of fresh ground pepper. The dressing is basic but it lets the produce shine though.
Make every dish your own! The possibilities are endless!
