    Lalaloula's Note:

    As the title indicates, I got this recipe from a good friend of mine, Anne. It is very quick and easy to make and really tasty, too. It's great for potlucks or brunch buffets (the recipe can be multiplied easily). I know there are many pasta salads on zaar already, but I think this one is just a little different. I hope you enjoy! Note: 250 g = 9oz; 200 g = 7oz

      I chose this recipe for the dressing because I'm always looking for alternatives to mayo for pasta salad. I made it with tricolored rotini, peas and tomatoes, plus diced red onion and green pepper--no apples, carrots or gherkins. The dressing is stupendous. I love the combination of herbs and the lemon juice plus mustard lend it a nice bite. Will definitely make again.

      horrible. Served this for a picnic and had most of it untouched! Carrots apples and peas and gherkins DO NOT go well together. I thought I would try it b/c I am open to new flavor combos but this was just awful. Sorry to be so harsh but no one liked it. I will never try something again to serve relying on the ratings - not my taste at all.

      Very interesting and tasty pasta salad! Such an unusual combination of ingredients with the addition of apples and pickles. The dressing was a bit tangy for my taste so I added just a touch of sugar. As the directions state, it's important to make the salad a couple of hours ahead so the flavors have time to blend. Thanks for posting this recipe!
