Poppy Seed Pasta Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Katey in GB

I made the recipe after a last minute request to bring a dish for a family reunion. The weather was hot, but the dish was a hit because it was different! The best part was that I literally threw together my kids favorites that were already in my kitchen.

So many nice flavors in here. Next time I will chop the cucumbers a bit smaller and use sliced almonds. Thanks for sharing! Made for PAC 09
