The salad was good, I added extra tomatoes. I do think next time I'd cut back on the mayo and yogurt, maybe a 1/4 each instead of a 1/3, it seemed to be a bit too much.
We really liked this. Very flavorful and healthy. We added tuna for a bit of protein.
Healthy and delicious! I made this for a cookout for myself and two of my friends who were also watching what they eat. This was actually gone before the regular pasta salad! I love the idea of using half mayo and half yogurt instead of all mayo, it cuts the calories and fat but doesn't affect the flavor very much. I did make some modifications: I used the juice of one lemon as well as the zest for more flavor, and also added a packet of the Wishbone Italian salad dressing mix. I don't like peppers so I left them out but added more tomatoes and carrots to compensate. The second time I made this, I added in broccoli and cucumbers as well, and added 2 lemons so I could stretch the dressing without adding calories. Pros: Healthy, tastes good, easy to make
my go-to pasta saladI've made this many times, guests love it. I stick to the recipe and I think it has great flavor (the garlic, lemon, basil and olives are a nice combo) I've found that the flavor is best the next day, so make ahead for best results.Pros: very tasty

Wow. What an amazing pasta salad Wow. This is really good. I would have never tried this and I'm so glad I did. I added Mrs Dash tomato basil garlic seasoning blend. I mixed all ingredients together at one time and I added the pasta last. Very creamy. Very well balanced. and if you aren't big on red/yellow peppers you won't be turn off by salad because everything is blended so well together. Pros: favor,easy to make, healthy, creamy
Garden Pata Salad I found this to be bland and so took other reviewers suggestions and added some italian dressing and feta. Still needs something, maybe raisins or grapes and some chopped nuts. That said it was very fresh and healthy tasting.
Very tasty and simple to make. My husband likes it too!
Perfect quick lunch! I made this on Sunday and had it for lunch for the next five days. It kept well and the veggies didn't get soggy. I used black olives instead of kalamata and sprinkled it with grated parmesan and I didn't serve it over greens. I would definitely make this again.
I really liked this recipe. The dressing was very tasty. I made it as a side dish with salmon filets for dinner, then had it the next day for lunch with some chick peas. It was very filling.
We loved this! I made it as directed (well, subbed black olives for kalamata because I was in a hurry and didn't want to deal with pitting) and took it to a Memorial Day party. We liked it so much that I'm making it again tonight for us. Light, fresh - YUM! I think this time I'm going to use the greek yogurt suggestion and also add a few thinly sliced red onions.
