REVIEW: recipe rating
Awesome recipe. I was out of balsamic vinegar, so I substituted white wine vinegar with great results. Can't wait to try it again with balsamic.
Also, I used a pint of grape tomatoes and halved them instead of the whole tomatoes cut up. I think next time I may even add some artichoke hearts.
Thanks for this great recipe!

This is a favorite of friends and family and it goes well with most picnic, potluck, or bbq settings. I sometimes use tri color rotini, cheddar cheese and cubed salami and pepperoni to make it a little different.
