Great side dish to have at BBQ's. Easy to make and good whether you make the dressing yourself of use shop bought dressing.
I have also added chopped cucumber and it changes it up slightly and it makes the dish go a little further. It's a hit with all the family and you can substitute wheat pasta and lo-fat dressing if you want a healthier dish.
