    Can't wait to make this again, so yummy. I was reluctant to put the peas and corn in but glad I did.  -  08 Nov 2010


    I have made this many times, it's addicting! I always add chopped peanuts on top. They compliment the curry wonderfully and realy add extra flavor. I have also decreased the mayo to cut calories and sometimes use chopped Romaine lettuce instead of iceberg with good results.  -  29 Sep 2008


    I had this for a lunch at my house with lots of women and they all liked it and commented on how good the dressing was. I will make this one again. It was like a meal with the pasta and all the veggies. Great and filling!  -  29 Sep 2008
