Prepare the pasta by bringing 4-5 quarts of water to a rolling boil in a large saucepan.
Add pasta to the pan, and when water begins to boil again, cook for 8-11 minutes. Pasta should be al dente, or mostly tender but with a slight toughness in the middle.
Whisk all of the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl. Cover and chill the dressing until you're ready to use it.
When pasta is done, pour it into a large bowl. Add the dressing, then toss.
Add the remaining ingredients to the pasta, and toss until combined. Cover and chill for several hours before serving.
