Jan, what an interesting combination of flavors. Really unique and very tasty. I am so proud of myself because I am growing an herb garden and I had the chives and oregano (fresh). You didn't specify whether the sundried tomatoes were oil packed or dry, so I chose the dry ones since you had olive oil listed. I didn't have the pine nuts, so I used sunflower seeds, and that worked out well. I loved eating this salad...no real cooking on a hot evening. I will make this one again. I am wondering how fresh tarragon would be instead of the oregano? Maybe I will be brave and make it that way soon. If I do, I will let you know how the substitution fit in. Thanks for posting this one!
Jan, we love your pasta salad, it's delicious. I've never used chives in a pasta salad before, it adds a very nice flavor. I made a few changes, I omitted the bacon and served the pine nuts on the side (DS HATES pine nuts). I added some extra garlic, a grating of parmesan cheese and some fresh basil (couldn't resist, it's grows right next to the oregano and chives in my garden). I'll be making this again... soon. Thanks for posting this recipe!
