Hubby and I loved this salad. We used plain Greek yogurt, lemon juice and zest, seedless green grapes, a whole smaller sweet onion and mint. This salad was great! We will be making this one again and again!
Adding lemon yogurt is a horrible idea-- it made the pasta sweet, which was not pleasant.
This is a very tasty chilled pasta salad, but I can't really imagine it served warm. Today was one of our first nice "summer" days and this made a good meal. I added a cup of cooked chicken and mandarin oranges in addition to the grapes. I have a lot of mint in my herb garden, also a lot of chives, so used them instead of green onion.
I thought this was very good....I would definetly let it chill before serving...also, I added fresh lemon zest to it and it was yummy!!!
This recipe is so good and it is easy to prepare. Everyone asks for the recipe when I make it. It's refreshing on a warm day.
I tried doing this as followed, but it didn't seem to work for me or 2 others. I can imagine that the pasta pictured would be much better than the bow tie. I will try making this again, but adding more lemon yogurt and less mayonnaise. Like another reviewer said, i can't imagine this served warm either.
Maybe it was my tastebuds, but I did not care for this recipe. Not one of my family members liked this dish. Will not make this again.
