Suggestions for a Pasta Salad

I bought a bag of Broccoli Slaw and was thinking about making it in a Pasta Salad for a potluck since I have two boxes of penne pasta. I am open to suggestions on: 1) whether this would be a good idea 2) what other ingredients to add that would make it more tasty 3) what dressing would work best for these ingredients.

I was thinking of adding raisins or dried cranberries and maybe some julienned apples (not sure on that yet). How does that sound and what type of dressing would work best with that and should I add any celery or other veggies?

Thanks!

I'm not a fan of penne pasta, so of course I would suggest other pasta like farfalle or something.

It's plain and ordinary, but I think creamy Italian dressing works well with pasta salad and is also well suited to the addition of sweet fruit such as apples or raisins.

I always like celery in almost any salad.
