My husband and I enjoy experimenting with foods we've tasted in other places. Pasta salads were just beginning to pop up in our area, so we decided to try our hand at them. We both like different ingredients, so sometimes we make it with the ingredients we both like, then we each add our favorite ingredients to our own pasta salad. This is the recipe we always take to the church pot luck. I double the recipe and hope I get some before it's all gone! We've never had leftovers to take home. I've shared it with several of the ladies (and men!) at the church.
