My sister shared the recipe for this fresh crunchy salad seasoned with dill. It's handy because you can assemble and eat it right away...or cover and refrigerate it to take to a picnic or potluck the next day. The longer it chills, the more tangy it is. —Anna Emory-Royal Murfressboro, Tennessee

"Excellent and was able to easily modify to meet my family's dietary needs without losing flavor."

"It's not my husband's favorite - the dill throws him off I think. But I L-O-V-E this salad and find myself sneaking to the fridge for more bites, and mourning when it's gone."

"I don't care for pasta salads normally and I love this one. It was also a hit with all of our elementary teacher's when I took it in for dinner on conference night! Great to make a day ahead and just add the cheese at the last minute or with each serving."
