  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the bow tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain and rinse several times with cold water until pasta is cool.
  2. Stir pasta, cucumber, onion, and dill in a salad bowl. Whisk vinegar, sugar, water, vegetable oil, mustard, salt, and black pepper in a separate bowl until sugar and salt have dissolved. Pour dressing over the pasta mixture and toss lightly to coat with dressing. Let chill for 2 hours before serving.

I tried this recipe and found it to be very tangy. I did make some changes. I used red onion and cut the dressing in half. I agree the original dressing is to much. I will definitely make th...

OMG Kim this stuff is out of this world delish! I can't stop eating it and I drank the juice right out of the bowl. Don't change anything just make it. It may be that I used a fresh picked cu...

It's great!! Very delicious. I also halved the dressing and used turbinado sugar instead of evil, refined, white sugar??? I'd make it again with about a quarter of the sugar called for.

I did not care for this recipe as written. I had to tweak it, because I didn't want to waste organic cucumbers. I added ½ cup of mayo, and ½ cup of Crumbled Feta Cheese. I would also advise to ...
