    I am a terrible cook and this turned out amazing!!! Everyone loved it. It was so flavorful, and it was even more delicious the next day. The next time I make it, I'm going to omit the pasta and I am going to add zucchini, squash, cucumbers, peppers and sundried tomatoes. Thank you for this great recipe!

    This is a great salad and it's quick to make. I added a few grinds of sea salt to the dressing and also added I few sprigs of fresh basil, chopped, for added color and flavor. Delicious!!

    Fantastic! I used a high quality balsamic(a much sweeter vinegar), doubled the recipe, omitted parmesan (making it vegan), added green bell pepper and subbed a sweet Vidalia onion for the green. I too added salt. I received a ton of compliments on this at a picnic and it will be a new staple for me. Everyone seems to LOVE it!

    This is really refreshing. I did add a bit of salt because it tasted kind of bland, but to each his own. I will make again. Co-workers enjoyed it. I served it with the "Recipe#317093". I didn't have any broccoli, so I added peas and carrots.
