Very good! A delightful summer main dish salad flavored. The peas not only add color but also a sweet offset for the bacon. Celery adds a bit of crunch and the celery seed - cumin flavor make this dish special. I made the recipe as directed except for the mint using 1 tsp chopped fresh cilantro instead and precooked bacon. I served this with sliced tomatoes and cucumbers. Thanks Jenny, this was a perfect dinner for summer in AZ.
We used 6 oz. dry pasta, and had to double the dressing for the salad as it wasn't enough. We also left out the dried mint and didn't use lemon wedges. After that it had absolutely no flavor, so we doctored it up using cubed cheese and ranch dressing to taste. After that it was excellent. We will be making it our way again.
Thanks, Jenny, for a really delightful salad. Very easy and quick to put together. The only change I made was to use frozen peas. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly.
