Summertime cooking doesn't have to be hot and boring. This little salad is great any time of the year. With a mix of veggies and fruit, and it will add a colorful addition to the table, it can be made for any season. Great at a BBQ or Ladies Luncheon, or for a side dish on Sunday after church.

A great pasta salad for your next pot luck. I can't wait to try this dressing on other salads too - it's very tasty!

I added the pineapple as the last step when I added the broccoli, red peppers and almonds. Also I used a 20 oz can of pineapple. Came out great! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
