Directions

  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.

There is way too much dressing, next time I will only make 1/4 of the dressing called for otherwise it's just like soup! I also only used 1/4 cup sugar to make it healthier, and it tastes just fine... I would think a whole cup would make it too sweet! I'm not sure what kind of mustard the recipe calls for, but I used dijon mustard. Other than that it's great, I will make it again!

Way too much dressing for the pasta. I halve it. Love the versatility of the dish. We just use cucumbers, tomatoes, and black olives. Yum!

Great sweet and tangy flavor! Very light side dish as there's no oil in it. I'd love to add some color to it though, it's not as "pretty" and colorful as most pasta salads, but flavor is great and I will be making this again! Thanks!
