    Shuzbud's Note:

    I came up with this one day when trying to use up ingredients I already had. The pine nuts give the salad a great, nutty flavour and add a bit of crunch to the texture. Serves 4 as a side dish. Update: I have added some olive oil to the pasta salad to moisten it up a bit, based on a review.

      This has the potential to be 5 stars. I love the ingredients but it is missing something. I thought red onion but it may be too strong. Maybe Kalamato olives?! This is a dry salad. You need to add something to make it moist. I can't figure that one out either. I would recommend putting the parmesan cheese on top of the salad. Thanks Shuzbud
