Penne Pasta Salad Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)
Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2006
"I" did not like this salad. I followed the recipe exactly. I felt the mustard / parmesean cheese / dill combination gave it a bitter, gritty taste. I served it at a family function, and everyone "said" they liked it, but not one person asked for the recipe. When it was time to go, someone did ask if they could have the rest. I was glad until they tossed it in the trash, bowl and all! Since I'm a low carb person and made pasta salad on request of the hostess, I will not make it again, though I think it would be better without the dijon mustard.

I love cooking and trying new things. I was looking for a pasta salad to bring to a picnic and I only had penne pasta - that's how I found this recipe. It turned out to be fantastic, and people seemed to like it. I found it easy to substitute, also.

I'm not a cold pasta salad fan but I'm always looking for new recipes to try--encouraging my kids to try new foods. This was easy and really good. I cut all the vegetables really small, and my kids ate it without a fight-one of them loved it, and so did I. The mayonaise dressing flavor was a bit strong, I may experiment next time with some ranch dressing or maybe sour cream. This is definitely a take to potluck dish that will impress others.

Excellent salad! It was a total hit at a company potluck. Everyone who tried it asked for the recipe. I found it to be the best pasta salad I've ever had. Very well-balanced, delicate, and unique.
