A delicate harmony of color distinguishes this attractive cold salad. Farfalle or conchiglie would be a good choice for the pasta.

I loved this pasta! It was good and easy to make. I did make several substitutions though. I used angel hair pasta, instead of the tri-colored pasta assortment (honestly, I don't even know what kind of pasta that is); I used mixed vegetables, instead of peas; I used baked salmon, instead of smoked; and I did not include the shrimp. It was still fantastic. Besides the baking time for the fish, this recipe took 5-10 minutes to make. Yum.

Just wonderful! I really wish this site would let you do half stars. As my wife and I give this recipe a 4.5. My only additions to the recipe was a Tbl. more of EVOO, a pinch more salt, and a tsp. more of lemon juice. Reasoning was, we cooked 12oz. of pasta as opposed to the 8oz. it called for. The smoked salmon and the taragon ABSOLUTELY make this dish what it is...YUMMY!!
