If you are looking for a Pasta Salad that is a bit different than your regular pasta salad, you may want to try this one. There is a bit of a kick to the salad dressing giving it a spicy but not overpowering flavor. Lately I have been eating so many different salads, and I tend to get bored with the regular salads that I make, so today I came up with this one. If you do try it please come back and let me know how you liked it.
