    With the pasta, veggies, Italian dressing and Parmesan cheese I add green olives and black with cubed pepper jack cheese. I never use onions or pepperoni.

    For someone who doesn’t like olives at all what would you recommend as a substitute? If any? I’m going to do this salad for tomorrow and eat it during the home-alone weekend.

    How does this Pasta Salad hold up in the refrigerator? I’m thinking of making it ahead of time for a 4 day boating trip at Lake Powell and curious if it will be okay refrigerated for that long.

    Shawn–I just wanted to say, I love your site and have been gleaning from it for quite a while. Lately I have been doing some new gleaning–for a blog that I co-write. I just wanted you to know that I have been adding your recipe links in my blogs. Just wanted you to know in case you get added traffic and are wondering. I will always link back to you directly. I am getting ready to feature a list of your recipes so I will send you that blog once finished.

    1. Well, you know what?! No one said a thing! In fact, there were some other boys that made a poster and I kid you not, it looked almost identical! Made me feel better for letting the kids have creative control.

    Do you have a good recipe for an Italian Dressing that would be good on this salad? I am making a cold-Italian-vegetable dish for a friend who is a soy and dairy allergy.m
