      Really good! I used sweetened, dried cranberries in an effort to imitate a pasta salad I had at a restaurant. It came very close! I might try adding a little red onion the next time I make it, but the recipe doesn't really need any tweaks.

      This is a winner! Made for a light dinner this past Friday and even my 14 year old DSS enjoyed it. Minor changes were: used 4 TBS of vinegar (better balance of sweet/sour for us); used rainbow twist pasta since that was what was on hand; used toasted chopped pecans rather than almonds. But even without the nuts this salad has a lovely flavor. Fact is I made a second batch tonight, per request of my dear fiancé, for tomorrow's lunch.
