    There wasn't enough in this recipe so I ended up adding a lot of extras like olives, mushrooms, mozzarella and cheddar cheese rather than american, cucumber and onions. The spiral tri-color pasta works the best though. It gives extra color and it traps the sauce well. I also make my own dressing.  -  18 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Great base recipe. I made this for a BBQ. I didn't have broccoli though. I added black olives, salad seasoning, diced cheddar cheese, and dressing.  -  03 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The base of this salad is great but I also add black olives, chunks of feta(instead of american cheese, thin small slices of onion and bell pepper, pepperoni and a T or so(depending on taste) of salad seasoning. You can also use low fat or non-fat dressing to make it more healthier.  -  07 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
