Hey all! I converted this tonight for the first time. This pasta salad is killer! It's always been a big hit at cookouts. I thought it tasted great with my adjustments too. I'll post the original recipe, noting my adjustments. I halved the recipe also, although not always exactly. This is one you need to make personal adjustments for your own triggers with lettuce & tomato. I think it originally came from Parents Magazine. Enjoy!
