"I loved this recipe too, but I agree with a lot of the other commenters. It DEFINITELY needed work. DO NOT go solely by the recipe itself. First, I used half the vegetables and twice the lime juice and tomatoe sauce instead of tomatoe juice, and I still thought it was a little bland (and it made A LOT of pasta salad, even with half the veggies). Someone else mentioned that it should be left to sit overnight and I definitely agree. I would almost recommend doubling the sauce amount and thickening it as well. The pasta salad itself though was definitely delicious. It's a little tangy and bitter, but with all the vegetables there is a wide array of individual flavors that also get picked up. It's for people who like to be healthy and have odd tastes though. The party I brought it too had a lot left over (which I was happy about, more for me) and I'd say it's definitely not for the boring, conservative, "chicken and sloppy joes" crowd. Easily the best pasta salad I've ever had though."
