      This is a wonderful pasta salad. The only thing that I added differently than the recipe calls for is dill weed and instead of plain yogurt I used fat-free sour cream since I had already had it on hand. I love dill and add it to almost any salad with seafood in it. I also doubled the servings. Even if i didn't add the dill weed, this dish still would have been absolutely wonderful. Thank you for a great recipe.

      I used this recipe as a stepping stone to build my own salmon salad. Thanks so much it really helped me get where I wanted to go. I left out the basil. I added: a can of black beans, rinsed and drained; 1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed, 1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed, and I used a 15 oz can of samon. I garnished with about 1/4 cup of grated cheddar cheese. Of course, I had to use more of your delicious yogurt dressing. Thanks again for the recipe. It got me to the perfect summer supper.

      I just wanted to thank both reviewers for the dill suggestion... The last time I made this dish I added dill and it was definitely an improvement. Thanks for making my recipe better!
