Dijon-Dill Pasta Salad

This salad is fantastic. Super refreshing.

Lemon and dill is the greatest. It reminds me of salmon. Now, I know that must sound funny coming from a vegetarian, but my mom used to make a lot of salmon with a lemon and dill glaze. And it was outrageously good.

Just the smell gets me going. But subtract the salmon and add pasta and some dijon mustard and you have yourself a delicious summery pasta salad that is perfect for this 102° weather.

Now, I realize this looks like just a normal, regular pasta. But, I assure you it’s not. It has a certain kick that is nothing less than gourmet. I do recommend, however, adding a little extra lemon juice or olive oil the next day if you have leftovers. Mine became a teensy bit dry. BUT. Worth it. Worth it, people.
