Thank you, Nurse Di, for another fine pasta salad. Lots going on, but could still taste each item. Will have again this hot summer.
I guess July 4th was Nurse Di day in our home. To compliment the steak kabobs we bar-b-qued I made these mushroom skewers, her potato salad and her rainbow pasta salad. The mushroom skewers were gone before I could even serve the meal, the only reason I had potato salad and rainbow pasta salad left was because I doubled the recipes so we would have some leftovers during the week. I did make the mushroom skewers with margarine in lieu of butter since I keep kosher and could not baste them with butter when serving with a meat meal. Obviously, the margarine made no difference, I tripled the mushroom recipe and THERE WAS NOTHING LEFT. Thanks Nurse Di!!!
Very pretty salad, but only thought it was fair on taste. Maybe it was the dressing I used? Flavors just did'nt seem to compliment each other. Sorry NurseDi. Tweeky, a.k.a. Judi
