TIP Show/Hide
Lighten up this recipe by using low-fat mayonnaise. If not serving immediately, set some dressing aside to stir in just before serving to ensure a creamy pasta salad. Replace the jerk sauce with pesto for an Italian-flavored pasta salad. Note: Recipe Inspired by Dody, Perdue Community Member.
