“Do not let the noodles sit in the sauce toss the complete salad together just before serving --- to save some time the dressing and/or the pasta can be prepared a day in advance --- you can add in your favorite veggies to the salad if desired, the amounts may be doubled to yield 6-8 -- this is very good!”
