Lemon Basil Pasta Salad Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2013
I like the flexibility of this recipe - it was good chilled but can also be served with the chicken hot off the grill. Additional vegetables can also be added, which is a plus. I agree with the previous reviewer that the lemon flavor was weak, so I also added more lemon juice, and brushed the chicken with lemon juice while grilling. I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. A good picnic salad. Thanks!

I made this exactly as written, tasted, and felt adjustments were needed. The lemon flavor was weak, so I added additional lemon juice as well as lemon zest. I think this pasta salad is a bit lacking in seasoning, so I did add some pepper and a little more garlic salt. If you're looking for a bold pasta salad, this isn't for you, as the flavor is mild and mellow. I'm not the world's biggest pasta salad person, but I do enjoy one occasionally. This made a nice dinner along with a fresh fruit salad and hot bread. Thanks philly6288 for sharing.
