Adapted an Allrecipes.com recipe and it tastes great! Will be amazing in the summer time!
The "cook time" is for pasta and chilling time.
Also, I seed the tomatoes to keep the salad from getting all soggy.
We tried it before the pickles and it was very bland (but not bad if that is what you are wanting). We are a flavor kick family so in the pickles went!
