Everyone asks me to bring this salad for get-togethers. Just made a double batch- one for the party and one for us. If you are vegetarian you will find it just as satisfying without the bacon.
This is a beautiful and delicious salad. Can be elegantly presented on a bed of greens or in a stemmed glass! You could substitute other vegs; we've even used frozen broccoli with delicious results. Candied walnuts could be used to vary the taste. One word of caution -- err on the side of al dente with your pasta so as to keep it nice thru the marrying process. Sad that my only Southern Living recipe had to have my name misspelled. LOL!
This is a fabulous recipe! Perfect for a summer cookout...light and refreshing.
This is outstanding. Very fresh tasting and unique but delicious. I have made it multiple times now and it has always been a hit.
Tastes super yummy! Substituted ham for the bacon. Used our own green beans, grapes, & red onion from our garden. Bringing to a family Labor Day picnic. Hoping for rave reviews!
I didn't have enough green beans so I added about a cup of edamame as well. Turned out great and added some protein.
