tried it and it was gross, didn't like the vinegar
if you rinse the pasta, you also rinse off the starch released during cooking, which could make the noodles stick while they cool.
If you rinse the pasta, you cool it down faster. I'm assuming that the goal is to have the pasta salad room temp. That's my thinking at least.
this is a wonderful spring/summer salad! it's so easy to make and my family loves it with a piece of salmon or some kind of light protein. If i'm really pressed for time, instead of cooking the broccoli in the skillet. I will add the broccol to the pasta water for just a few minutes to cook. Just drain well, and add a pinch of pepper flakes to the tossed salad. Then there is one less pot to clean. :-)
