We just loved this pasta salad, huge hit at our Memorial Day BBQ!!! I made this exactly as written, except I omitted the lettuce and served the black olives on the side, for those of us who like them. The dressing is so good, exactly what I wanted for flavor and tang!!! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe, this will be made again and again. Made for ZWT 7.

We really enjoyed this simple to throw together salad. The only thing we felt that could have made it even better was a little more punch. LIke maybe some stronger seasoning, or some pepperoncinis. We used wheat pasta, and I think that was part of it though. But gotta try to be healthy some of the time I guess lol. It could also only be better with the addition of some fresh grated parmesan on top, or maybe some crumbled proscuitto. The sky is the limit. We also subbed out green pepper for the cucumber since my Dh hates them. Thanks for a great recipe, and one I can definitely see us making for potlucks!

This was really good! I wasn't sure about the addition of lettuce, but it brought the pasta salad to a whole new level. I made the salad the night before, but did not add the lettuce until right before serving. This was great...nice change from your usual pasta salad. A definite do over!

We loved this salad! Great combination of ingredients that made a fantastic dish. We will make this again and again throughout the warmer months, as it is so refreshing and goes with many dishes. Loved this one Parsley!

Thank you so much for sharing this delicious and beautiful recipe! I used tricolor pasta and roasted red peppers. I know I will be making this often. The dressing is so flavorful, yet not heavy. I love Kitten's suggestion of adding a little basil, I will try that next time. Made for ZWT4

I made some amount adjustments to this recipe, for the dressing I used fresh garlic in place of garlic powder, I increased the oregano and added in 1 teaspoon dried basil, I started with 1/4 cup wine vinegar and I did not add in more as that amount was enough for our tastes, I also did some amount adjustments with the salad ingredients, this salad only improves with chilling time, thanks for sharing Parsley we enjoyed this!...Kitten")

This is a tasty pasta salad and different than most others you see at picnics. The dressing is light but slightly tangy. I took this to a family get-together this weekend and everyone raved about it. It does taste just like an Italian sub and I will definitely be making this again.
