Bombay Pasta Salad

This Bombay Pasta Salad is my take on that creamy shell pasta salad at the deli counter with raisins and a hint of curry.

I love that salad.  You can use any pasta shape you like but pick an interesting one so there are grooves and crannies to trap some of the dressing.

I like to serve this with this Chinese Duck Salad as a cold lunch or supper menu.

Shredded duck meat on a bed of julienned mango, carrot and celery

Part of the reason they are a good match is because the same julienned vegetables go well with both the duck and the pasta salads.

Both the Bombay Pasta Salad and the Chinese Duck Salad are great make ahead dishes.  The both hold well in the fridge for a day or two.
