    CookinCowgirl's Note:

    I used to eat a salad similar to this at a place called Massimo's. I was disappointed they went out of business, so I came up with what best approximated theirs and I've been a happy camper since. This is probably better in the warmer months, as it's served room temperature. Serve with your favorite Italian bread.

      I'm really not sure why I haven't rated this yet because it is ABSOLUTELY wonderful!!!! The lemon vinaigrette with the pistachios is a wonderful pairing and the smoked salmon really brings a wonderful smoky salty flavor to the pasta. So delicious and so easy to make! Tastes fantastic the next day, too. Cold or warm...I like it both ways! Thanks CookinCowgirl!
