    Very flavorful! I used a tablespoon dried dill and a tablespoon dried parsley. I might try it with less dill next time. I wish it were a tad healthier so I might experiment with reducing the amount of mayonnaise. I used rotini because it looked so appetizing in the picture.

    I enjoy using buttermilk and we do like this but first felt it needed an extra something. I added some sliced black olives, celery and apple sausage - it was pretty good. Tonight my husband added a small amt of horseradish and he said, "perfect!" I will make it again but add our little touches.

    I loved all the different herbs and veggies, which not only give a nice fresh crunch but also make for a very colorful salad. We had it as a side with slow cooked ribs, and it was all quite tasty!

    Loved this salad!! I made "as is" except left out the parsley. Delish! Served it with my Best Ever BBQ chicken and found that the sauce is really good with this salad. You could add all sorts of yummy veggies or ingredients to this salad to spice it up even more.
