    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
