Excellent! I made this exactly as written, using tomatoes and herbs from my garden. I served this with [recipe=39622]Roasted Greek Style Chicken #39622[/recipe] and steamed sweet corn. Great meal.
Delicious! A burst of flavor with every bite. I made minor changes: used garlic powder instead of cloves, and used my freshly dried basil, instead of fresh basil leaves - and it was still amazing. I thought it tasted too lemony at first, but after refrigeration for two hours, the lemony tang was mellow and perfect. Next time I make it, I'll be sure I have fresh basil. I really love this pasta salad. It tastes very Mediterranian.
With the weather so hot, this salad is great!. Loads of flavors going on here, and we loved every last drop!
Like the revious reviewers, I often find pasta salad rather flavorless. This one was terrific!! This is a fresh and flavorful recipe. A definite keeper! Thanks!
We loved this. I find that pasta salad can be kind of "whimpy", so unlike some other reviewers who found it too tangy, I found it full of flavour. Actually, I found this recipe on Epicurious and came looking for it here so I could review it (my personal way of saving my absolute favourite recipes). When I made it I actually also added basil and parsley from the garden!!! Great minds think alike, I guess. Anyway, Chia, thanks so much for posting it so I will always be able to find it. Terrific recipe.
My family also found this too tart and tangy. I salvaged it by adding some pesto and a pinch of sugar to the dressing. I also added chopped lettuce and grilled chicken to spread the flavor around. Much more palatable! Thanks for posting!
My family wasn't wild about this, but I thought it was pretty good. I am going to add some grilled chicken pieces to the leftovers and I bet they will finish it off. I wasn't sure about the basil and green onions--it seemed like it would overpower it, so I tested a small amount with all the flavors and decided to leave them out. I also used bottled roasted red peppers and was very happy with the results.
Well this went over BIG with the DH and a sewing group that I went to today. I couldn't believe that DH liked it and continued to ask for more... that's a BIG deal in this house!! The fresh lemon and basil made this REALLY great!! The only thing I didn't put in this was the red pepper and that is because I am not a big fan of them. I followed the rest of the recipe to the letter and YUMM-O!! I would have taken a picture but i couldn't wait to eat it and when I could take one it was ALL gone!! TRY THIS YOU'LL LIKE IT!!!!
Excellent pasta salad. I love the lemon flavored dressing and the fresh cherry tomatoes from our garden made this a very fresh tasting salad. I didnt use fresh basil. Inspired to make this dish thanks to Bev's picture. I will be making this again thanks for posting chia.
Thought I followed the recipe, but turned out way, way lemony for us.
