This is a great alternative to a potato salad at a barbecue! The flavours are very Italian - basil, pine nuts and prosciutto.
I made this salad to take to a Xmas BBQ and I couldn't stop sampling while I was putting it together - very easy and very yummy. - 08 Dec 2012
This is my new favorite salad -- used all spinach instead of basil and used fried choped up bacon instead of prosciutto -- You never can go wrong with bacon -- there is never any left over and I always have left over pasta salad. You can leave out the nuts and it is still wonderful. - 20 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I'm a firm believer about rating a recipe as it was written. It drives me nuts when people rate a recipe after they've made a million changes to the recipe. So with that being said, I think this recipe is delicious as written. I think next time I make it, I'll cut back on the olive oil. But other than that, this recipe was a hit with the fam and company. I love it served cold as well. After trying this recipe, I don't think I'll ever go back to making the traditional pasta salad - thanks for sharing Jennifer - 22 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
