First Class Smoked Salmon Sea Shell Salad

First Class Travel VS how Elaine Traveled

On a flight back to Reno from Tampa, Florida we upgraded to first class. I had the  most delicious pasta salad I had ever tasted. I’ve tried for years to copy this dish and I think I have it down.  Richard and I always laugh as we remember the Seinfeld episode when Jerry flew first class and Elaine flew coach.
