This salad was a huge hit with DH, so much so that I almost didn't get any. He took this out of the fridge and ate most of it (I had halved the recipe). He said it was a great salad. High praise from someone who doesn't like pasta very much. It was so easy to make. The pickle juice added to the mayonnaise gave it wonderful flavor. I loved it too, and will be making this quite often. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Great summertime dish. Too hot to eat anything but something cool. I used some home made pickle relish and our family really enjoyed this. Made for ZWT7.

A wonderful addition to our BBQ last night! I love the egg and pickle combo. Turns out what my hubby thought was green onion was actually fresh garlic - so I ended up using fresh chives from my garden in place of the green onion. I also added fresh pepper and some paprika just for a little interest. Made for ZWT6.

I was extremely pleased with the amount of flavor that this simple salad delivers. I didn't feel like making a full magilla big dinner last evening so I pulled this out of my tag list (yay) and made it up. It was chilled for about 3 hrs and served with some imitation crab for a welcome lighter meal. I used broken linguine for the pasta and garlic dills. :D

I enjoyed this salad, but even though I added extra mayo, it was still a little dry for me. Loved the green onions and gherkins. Next time I would add some dijon mustard as well, and add some salt and pepper. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT7.

This is an easy and delicious pasta salad. I chose this recipe to make as it reminded me of one my German mother in law makes when I go to visit. I made sure to add plenty of juice from the gherkins and also made it more of a main dish salad by adding some cubed ham and cheese. This is a nice salad to enjoy sitting on the patio with a chilled glass of white wine. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT 7, Shady Ladies!

This is a great pasta salad. I used small shells for this and made it as written. I added a small amount of pickle juice and a little more mayo. Definitely a keeper!. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7-Switzerland.

Delicious. Simple. I made ours gluten free using rice penne pasta. (Better when not ice cold for rice pasta) I used extra Hellman's olive oil mayonnaise to be soy free, baby dill pickles and some of the liquid, plus the hard boiled egg. I may make this again. Made for ZWT7 Switzerland, for my team Food.Commandos
