"I found the original recipe in the Taste Of Home's Annual Recipes 1997.It was sent to them by Pat Kordas from Nutley,New Jersey. And as usual with some recipes,I had to make a few personal changes. The " COOK TIME " is the time it takes to chill. Cooking the pasta is included in the prep time. Please feel free to adjust any seasonings to your own personal tastes. Posted to " ZAZZ " on 6/21/16.

Great salad! I made a few minor changes by using tri-colored spiral pasta, no onion and no celery but I did use celery salt in place of regular salt and added some dried onion flakes to the mayo mixture. Served as a lunch salad -- forgot the crackers. Thanks for sharing this keeper salad. So easy and uses items that are always on hand in my house.
