I have a zippy tip for any pasta salad, add a teaspoon of dried red chile flakes to the pasta water

- and be sure to open a window or turn on the fan in the range hood (cough cough)! The chiles give the pasta itself a nice zesty spice, not hot and soucey but just a little something something. Any chile flake that doesn't drain out in the colander just adds to the finished dish! I do this especially with line caught tuna in big chunks, halved cherry tomatoes, olives, feta, parsley and mint in a red wine vinagrette dressing for summer picnics, out of the city summer picnics that is. A city summer picnic involves hot tomato vodka soup, spiced cider, warm chicken or meatloaf and other frigid weather fare. LOL. Only in SF!!!
