This pasta salad is different! It is based on tomato like Spanish gazpacho soup but has a lime dressing and kick from green chilli.
Made it vegetarian. This was fantastic. I substituted a jar of salsa for the tomatoes, tomato juice, jalapeno and capsicum. - 29 Sep 2008
Something else. I was looking for a change from the usual mayo based salads and decided on this since we love Gazpacho soup. From past experience I cut the amount of jalapeno which we believe to be a wise decision. I also used V8 juice and that gave it more of a taste. I used more juice than called for as experience has taught pasta absorbs liquid and with the amount given it was going to really soak in. Finally I added a touch more salt as that balances the lime a bit better, and added fresh chopped basil, flat leaf parsley and coriander. This passed the 'husband review' with flying colours! - 29 Sep 2008
This recipe was outstanding. I loved the chilli in it--gave it a just-right kick! - 29 Sep 2008
