    Delicious! A burst of flavor with every bite. I made minor changes: used garlic powder instead of cloves, and used my freshly dried basil, instead of fresh basil leaves - and it was still amazing. I thought it tasted too lemony at first, but after refrigeration for two hours, the lemony tang was mellow and perfect. Next time I make it, I'll be sure I have fresh basil. I really love this pasta salad. It tastes very Mediterranian.

    Like the revious reviewers, I often find pasta salad rather flavorless. This one was terrific!! This is a fresh and flavorful recipe. A definite keeper! Thanks!

    We loved this. I find that pasta salad can be kind of "whimpy", so unlike some other reviewers who found it too tangy, I found it full of flavour. Actually, I found this recipe on Epicurious and came looking for it here so I could review it (my personal way of saving my absolute favourite recipes). When I made it I actually also added basil and parsley from the garden!!! Great minds think alike, I guess. Anyway, Chia, thanks so much for posting it so I will always be able to find it. Terrific recipe.
