  • 8 ounces dried short pasta, such as rotini or bowties
  • ½ cup Duke's Mayonnaise
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Finely grated zest of 1 medium lemon
  • Juice of 1 medium lemon
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh dill, plus more for serving

  • ¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ small red onion, finely chopped (½ cup)
  • ½ cup chopped roasted red peppers
  • ½ medium English cucumber, quartered lengthwise and thinly sliced (1½ cups)

1. Bring 2 quarts of heavily salted water to a boil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes or according to package directions. Drain the pasta in a colander and rinse under cold water until cool. Drain well.
