    Delicious. I added sundries tomatoes and artichoke hearts. Was great even the next day.

    Love, love, love this recipe!! Have made it about 20+ times. Kids love it, their friends love it and it’s often requested at gatherings. I make it often for lunches for the week. Only recommendation is to use fresh feta not the crumbles.

    I loved this recipe! I used a little bit of Newman’s Own garlic and olive oil vinaigrette. Added a bit more flavor!

    This was fantastic! My husband proclaimed it to be the best he’s ever had. I used a pound of bow ties and did 1 1/2 times the dressing. No other alterations to the recipe.

    Love the dressing. This was yummly without any modifications but I've added chick peas for some protein.

    this was fantastic. of course it was a little dry the next day so i added a drizzle of olive oil. will write this one down for my recipe box
    Took this to a party and everyone could not stop raving about it. This recipe is a keeper! The only thing I changed was I added some yellow peppers.

    This turned out really well. The vinaigrette is exactly the correct amount. I used the grape tomatoes instead of cherry but other than that, I stuck to the recipe.
