This is best left overnight to allow the flavours of cucumber, tomatoes and spring onions to develop and blend.
I made this to take to a 4th of July cookout last weekend. It was a HIT! I altered the recipe by using part Good Seasons Italian and part Zesty Italian dressings; used 1/2 a chopped onion instead of green onions; used 3 tomatoes instead of 6; added 1/2 green pepper; 4 ounces of shredded paramesan cheese instead of grated; and added a small can of black olives. Even people who weren't found of pasta salad said it was delicious! Thanks for a great base recipe - the possibilities are endless as to what you could do with this! - 10 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Very simple and light, yet a tasty salad. Perfect for those summer days! I added a little black pepper to mine just for the extra punch since it had a very mild taste. I also add onion powder sometimes. You can add more or less salad dressing depending on your taste and you could experiment with other salad dressing flavors as well. I have to say my favorite is with Balsamic Vinagrette Salad Dressing(light). Just simple and delicious! Thanks for the recipe! - 19 Jun 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Great pasta salad - perfect for any BBQ! Pasta salads are so easy and no matter what you add to them as long as the veggies are fresh, you use a good quality dressing, and it's chilled - it'll be delicious. So add what you like. This recipe is a great base. I used tri-colored pasta, a whole bunch of cherry tomatoes that I cut in half and added some black olives along with the rest of the ingredients. For the dressing I used Good Seasons Italian dressing mix (so it was kinda homemade, and kinda not). I also added some parmesan and romano cheeses. This is a definite keeper! - 15 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
