1 (8 ounce) package
bow tie pasta
cucumber, thinly sliced
onion, thinly sliced
1 1/2 teaspoons
ground black pepper
We used the recipe as stated, sort of. We added a chopped red chile pepper. The flavors worked very nicely together. We will use this recipe again.
Great sweet and tangy flavor! Very light side dish as there's no oil in it. I'd love to add some color to it though, it's not as "pretty" and colorful as most pasta salads, but flavor is great and I will be making this again! Thanks!
OMG Kim this stuff is out of this world delish! I can't stop eating it and I drank the juice right out of the bowl. Don't change anything just make it. It may be that I used a fresh picked cucumber that my neighbor gave me but honestly this stuff would be good with a Kroger cucumber.
I tried this recipe and found it to be very tangy. I did make some changes. I used red onion and cut the dressing in half. I agree the original dressing is to much. I will definitely make this again.
There is way too much dressing, next time I will only make 1/4 of the dressing called for otherwise it's just like soup! I also only used 1/4 cup sugar to make it healthier, and it tastes just fine... I would think a whole cup would make it too sweet! I'm not sure what kind of mustard the recipe calls for, but I used dijon mustard. Other than that it's great, I will make it again!
Way too much dressing for the pasta. I halve it. Love the versatility of the dish. We just use cucumbers, tomatoes, and black olives. Yum!
