This recipe is really flexible. I made enough dressing so you could add more veggies or other ingredients if you like. If you do, you can adjust the amount of dressing to your liking. I recommend starting by pouring about half the dressing over the salad, tasting and then pouring more if desired. The amount of dressing can be a personal thing. Some like their pasta salads drowning in dressing and some like it more subtle. I’ll let you decide.
