Loved this pasta salad! It's a very different type of pasta salad recipe than I've had in the past and I really enjoyed this. The fresh veggies add tons of crunch. And the lemon mayo has a light, fresh taste. This recipe does make a lot... so prepare to feed a crowd and make this in a large bowl. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
