This recipe is definitely a keeper -- we can't wait to have an excuse to make it again. I used a whole wheat rotini for the pasta, substituted non-fat plain yogurt for the buttermilk in the dressing, and used toasted pecans. We really do not like mayo - so this salad is perfect! I almost didn't add onions, but I'm glad I did -- it added a nice touch. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe with us!
