This is my favorite pasta salad. I adapted a dressing recipe (the one that's on the back side of a bottle of Heinz Gourmet Salad Vinegar) to suit our tastes and it has become our favorite dressing for pasta salad. I've been making it this way for about 7 years, and we all think it's wonderful. This is way better than using a bottle of Italian dressing or something like that, in my opinion. The veggies listed here are just the ones we like to have in pasta salad, but you could certainly change that up some if you wanted (like you could add cauliflower if you like that, or even a can of cannellini beans would go nicely, sometimes I add that). I hope you try it (you'll loooove it, LOL!!) Today I made this to go with Strombolis for lunch. Very delicious!
