    I have a similar recipe that is always received well. I cook the pasta, add the Italian dressing, then add a little McCormick Salad Supreme - about 1/4 of the bottle. I stir this up and let it sit overnight so that the flavors can meld. Then the next day I add all the other ingredients and a little more dressing if necessary. Delicious!  -  18 Jun 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is the best pasta salad I have ever made! I made it for a party for the first time and everyone loved it. I made it the night before, adding everything except the cheese, so the dressing would soak into the pasta. It was wonderful!! Just tossed the cheese in before serving, and add a little more dressing. I also cut chery tomatoes in half and added to the salad instead of cutting up whole tomatoes--less messy.  -  15 Oct 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Great party or gathering salad. Broccoli and Cauliflower as add in's are a must. Also squeeze out the excess liquid from the tomatoes to keep from diluting the dressing.  -  20 Dec 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
