If you're a scallop-lover, you'll really enjoy this chilled pasta salad seasoned with lemon juice, olive oil and red wine vinegar. "You can serve it hot, too," notes Bernadette Johnson of Woodstock, Georgia.

  • 1 large tomato, peeled, seeded and chopped
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 2 ounces uncooked angel hair pasta, broken in half
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Coarsely ground pepper to taste
