Dilled Salmon Pasta Salad

Salad Recipes | 0 comments

Another quick and easy pasta salad, you don’t even have to thaw or cook the peas, just add them frozen to the pasta – they thaw as the pasta is cooling and as a bonus, cool the pasta faster. Makes a great main course salad. You can use any kind of pasta if you don’t have farfalle.
