Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I'm not a pasta salad fan; I usually find it gummy & unappealing. But it's often the perfect thing for a summer buffet. Since I think lemon is the solution to everything, I experimented, & read & combined lots of recipes, & came up with this light delicious version. It was a hit in Southold in 2017. This is for you, Kathy!
