It was sooooo good. My husband told me to skip the salad next time and go straight to the pasta. He just really liked it a lot. I really don't know what it was about the salad that didn't work, I usually really like Ina's food, but this time........it isn't that it was bad, it just wasn't worth the money that was invested to make it.

Montauk Seafood Salad Pasta
Ok, so last night I made Ina Garten's Montauk Seafood Salad and wasn't bowled over by it. Since I had a lot left over, I decided to make Montauk Seafood Salad Pasta - that is a mouthful. Anyway I took the salad out of the fridge and brought it to room temperature. Before I put the salad in the skillet, I sauted 3 cloves of garlic in some of the extra olive oil mixture. I then added about 3/4 cup white wine to the skillet, reduced it by about 1/3 and added the salad. While I was doing that, my pasta (linguini) was happily cooking on the stove. Once the pasta was cooked and the salad was warmed up, I tossed the noodles with the sauce, added parsely, salt, pepper, and mizithra cheese - I know, I know, the Italians never add cheese to their seafood sauce. It wasn't much cheese, and it added another wonderful flavor.
