Deli-style Pasta Salad


Just the photo of this pretty salad in “Taste Of Home Summer's Best Recipes" caught our eye.  The list of delicious ingredients made it a “go” to try.  We don’t like most bottled dressings, so I’m giving Myrna’s Italian Dressing – so easy, cheaper, and better tasting than purchased.
I have also made this with Summer sausage and white cheddar; not Italian, but still very good.
