"So yummy! I was short on time and ingredients, so substituted craisins for dried cherries, walnuts for almonds and red wine vinegar for champagne vinegar. I also didn't have poppy seeds. However was v..." See moreery easy and quick to make (made 1 hour before a potluck). I will definitely be making this again!!!!!"
"This was pretty good but could be stepped up a notch. The quantity of the vinegar is so small that it doesn't seem to really help the flavor, it was instead lost-next time I will cut out the water an..." See mored use all champagne vinegar instead. I think sweet onion would be a nice addition to the flavors, too. Also, I think using blanched almonds would be best. I used whole almonds that I cut in half and toasted (all I had on hand) and when I pulled lunch from the fridge (made 2 servings to take for lunch), the almond skins had discolored the pasta a little. Will make again with these minor changes!"
