    I'm not a cold pasta salad fan but I'm always looking for new recipes to try--encouraging my kids to try new foods. This was easy and really good. I cut all the vegetables really small, and my kids ate it without a fight-one of them loved it, and so did I. The mayonaise dressing flavor was a bit strong, I may experiment next time with some ranch dressing or maybe sour cream. This is definitely a take to potluck dish that will impress others.  -  17 Oct 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I was looking for a recipe for a Penne Pasta Salad that I had at a buffet on the weekend and this is it! This salad was amazing, however I did omit the parmasean cheese due the the fact I find it overpowers alot of flavors, and because I was using dried dill which again I find packs a bigger punch as opposed to fresh I cut the amount down a bit, and it was PERFECT!  -  27 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Excellent salad! It was a total hit at a company potluck. Everyone who tried it asked for the recipe. I found it to be the best pasta salad I've ever had. Very well-balanced, delicate, and unique.  -  19 May 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
