    Miss Annie's Note:

    This salad is great, and you mix it up a day ahead of serving. It is for a large crowd, but you could cut the recipe in half. Prep time includes 12 hours in the refrigerator. This is from "Threadgill's, The Cookbook" by Eddie Wilson. A landmark grill in Austin.

      First of all, I loved all the veggies in this pasta salad. However, I found the dressing rather ordinary, and as others have said, the recipe given did not make enough for 4lbs of pasta. I am not giving a star rating because I made one possibly substantial change to the recipe, by drastically reducing the quantity of green chilies, and that would have certainly given it more zing. I would have given it 3 stars in the form I made -- it was tasty but nothing special. I'm also kind of mystified as to why you'd give a salad dressing recipe that calls for the addition of pre-made vinaigrette dressing, considering that the recipe to that point basically is a vinaigrette.

      This was delicious, although I did make a few changes. I only cooked up 1 pound of spiral pasta, and halved the vegs. and made a full batch of the dressing. This worked well and was delicious! Four pounds of pasta would make an awful lot. I also added a touch of ranch dressing to my bowl, because I felt it could use a touch more dressing. I loved all the veggies in this. Thanks Annie!
