We like this cold pasta salad as a main dish on a hot summers day. If you can find yellow or purple cherry tomatoes add them in too, it makes for a nice looking salad along with the red cherry tomatoes.....and tasty too! :o) Use pepperoni or turkey sticks if you do not want the beef, or use any combo of cheeses. If you like more dressing add more of that too. Anything works! It's all good!!..... :o)
