Excellent pasta salad! Very simple and so delicious! I particularly liked the dressing made with the Good Seasons mix. Will be tripling this recipe to serve at the rehearsal dinner the night before my son’s wedding. Thanks!!

I’ve been making this salad for years and just realized that I’ve never left a review! It’s my go to – the first one that I think of when I need to make a pasta salad or that my friends/family will request. Great flavors and it never lasts long at my house! My only change is that I don’t add the olives because my family doesn’t like them, other than that, it’s perfect as is.

This was such a hit for our holiday party this weekend! Thanks for the great recipe! It’s a little different than the basic pasta salad you get all the time!

I agree… loved the “extras” in the dressing! Great pasta salad, and easy to make!

This was great!! I made it the night before so all of the flavors could marry. Couldn’t have picked a better pasta salad to make. I love the fact it’s not *JUST* Italian dressing, it has a little twist, a yummy twist. The only thing I did not do was add olives. Me no likey.
