We were discussing mac salad in Chatterbox, and then I remembered I have a pict plus wrote down directions to a pasta salad I make all the time.
When I was working I got a lot of requests for this.
I know all you gals in Just A Pinch have your own version, and from what I saw they all looked YUMMY, here is one of my versions.
