This was a wonderful salad. I liked the curry flavor in this. I didn't have bow tie pasta so I used the multi- colored spiral pasta. I also didn't have any yogurt so I subbed with sour cream. I also added some chopped ham and turkey meat I had lefted over in the ref. I scaled this down to 4 servings since its just DH and I here at home. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe :)
