    Chef #1193857's Note:

    This is the exact recipe for Sweet Tomatoes/Soup Plantation's Salad. I go there as often as possible for this salad. Finally learned how to make it myself. Word to the wise, DO NOT TASTE IT BEFORE THE 8 HOURS OR IT WON'T TASTE RIGHT. Trust me, its worth the wait!

    1. 1
      For the pasta: In a large pot, bring 3 quarts of water and 1 tablespoon salt to a full boil. Add pastas and cook for about 10 minutes until al dente. Immediately strain pasta and cool by running cold water over pasta in strainer. Drain pasta completely and place in a bowl. Coat pasta with canola oil to prevent sticking.
    2. 2
      For the dressing: Place tuna in a large bowl and break down into small pieces. Add the remaining dressing ingredients and thoroughly whisk to combine.
    3. 3
      Combine the dressing and cooked pasta and mix thoroughly. ALLOW SALAD TO MARINATE FOR 8 HOURS! After 8 hours, top with more pickle juice and salt and pepper to taste.

      Bon Apetite!

      This recipe is perfect. I didn't think it was too pickle-y at all. Tastes exactly like what I remember from Sweet Tomatoes. Thank you so much for posting it!

      Since this was my favorite dish from Sweet Tomatoes, I decided to use this recipe last year to make it for Thanksgiving and it was a success! So much so, my family now expects me to make this dish ever year for Thanksgiving. It's definitely way more than 6 servings, more like feeding 6 families with 6 members so I would only recommend it for a special occasion. It does not taste to "Pickle-y" at all. This is my second time making it and it came out perfect each time! Thanks for the recipe, Please don't ever take it down!!

      I agree with the immediately previous poster to me. I feel that there seems to be an excess of sweet pickle flavor involved. So much so, that it masked the tarragon and tuna flavors. It certainly makes more than six servings also! I do have a question. Is the amount of pasta directed in the recipe before cooking or after? That may have something to do with the amount that is made in the end. I made my dish with the required amounts before cooking and sure had a whole lot more than six servings! More like twelve servings!
