This is a great pasta salad for spring and summer when the weather is great and you don't want to spend it in the kitchen. It's very kid friendly too.

  • Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

  • Arrange slices of Roma tomatoes on the salad before serving.

This is easy to make pasta salad that has too much dressing. I would have preferred that amount cut in half! The dill and onion flavors compliment the salmon nicely. Because I'm a vegetable lover I added peas and celery to the cucumbers. Tomatoes make a great garnish! Read More

use greek salad dressing instead of yogurt much better tasting and leave out the mayo you won't need it with the dressing.... Read More

I'll never make this again. The taste of the yogurt is overpowering. Read More
