What makes this a "tailgate" pasta salad? The fact that there are no dairy products in it and it stays tasty and good for hours outside! This has a sweet "tang" to it and is quite addictive. A great compliment to Burgers, ribs, steaks, etc. Much healthier than the traditional creamy pasta salads, I think you'll find it a great new way to make a pretty and delicious Pasta Salad.
