Pasta Salad with Poached Shrimp and Lemon-Dill Dressing

I was just flipping through Pinterest and saw this pretty pasta salad.  I love shrimp and had all the ingredients on hand so I figured this would be nice for lunch.  I got the recipe here.  
It was ok.  For me very lemony.  I think what my mistake was was that I used bottled lemon juice instead of fresh.  I also only had dried dill, not fresh. 
I think I might like to try this again and follow the recipe exactly. 

The dressing mixed up.

My skrimps.

Finished product.

After thinking about it, I think one thing that kind of turned me off of it was just the fact that when I think "pasta salad" I think mayo based.  The pasta in the dish was really dry to me and I'm thinking a little mayo would make it better.  I'm also thinking same salad but without the pasta.  Maybe some more veggies like green peppers and carrots.
