Personal Notes:
I first tasted this recipe at Covenant Circles( a small group thing Lynwood church was doing so that we got to know one another) Anyways Cindy Yonkman brought this and I have never had a pasta salad that was so good. She said she just went to the store after work and picked up a few things and threw it together. O.K. so I thought if Cindy worked all day and said she had time to throw it together, it must be pretty easy. I made it for Maddy's b-day party and lets just say it is a very time consuming pasta salad to make! But it is very good! So my mom and I always laugh at this story because if anyone knows Cindy Yonkman that is just how she looks at everything! So it is a great salad, but a little pricey and time consuming to make. I didn't just throw it together! It is worth the time though.
