    Diana #2's Note:

    I realize the only vegetable here that makes it's appearance in Spring, would be chives. However, the bright colours of this salad always remind me of the season where everything starts new. This is a wonderfully light pasta salad. A perfect accompaniment for a backyard BBQ. It's also wonderful on it's own for lunch or supper on a hot night. Cooking time does not include the time for chilling.

      This salad was a nice change from the potato salads served along side our campfire smokies on a resent fishing trip. Thanks Diana #2. [Made and reviewed for Recipe Swap #29, June 2009].

      I couldn't find summer savory at any of the stores I went to... so I subbed thyme and majoram for it. Might be the lack of correct herbage, but I just... I don't know, it didn't seem to have much oomph. It was fine, but it wasn't, you know... super awesome and freaky. Maybe some garlic, or vinegar or mustard or something to give it just a little kick. Thanks, though, this will be lunch tomorrow! :) *** Edit: I did have this for lunch today, but with a spattering of Old Bay Seasoning. It seemed to give it that flavor I thought was missing before. I'm making more of this very soon. The Old Bay was the key.
