We had a potluck for my sons' cub scout Raingutter Regatta and I decided that I wanted to try this new pasta salad that I found on pinterest. It was easy to through together and had a great taste to it. It definitely makes a lot so I am glad that I didn't double it like I have a tendency to do! This will be another great repeat when I have to bring a side dish along somewhere...
