This pasta salad is different! It is based on tomato like Spanish gazpacho soup but has a lime dressing and kick from green chilli.

  • 4 spring onions, chopped
  • 1 green capsicum, chopped
  • 1 green or jalapeño chilli, seeded and finely chopped

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 cup (125ml) fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup (200ml) tomato juice

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min

Made it vegetarian. This was fantastic. I substituted a jar of salsa for the tomatoes, tomato juice, jalapeno and capsicum. - 29 Sep 2008


Something else. I was looking for a change from the usual mayo based salads and decided on this since we love Gazpacho soup. From past experience I cut the amount of jalapeno which we believe to be a wise decision. I also used V8 juice and that gave it more of a taste. I used more juice than called for as experience has taught pasta absorbs liquid and with the amount given it was going to really soak in. Finally I added a touch more salt as that balances the lime a bit better, and added fresh chopped basil, flat leaf parsley and coriander. This passed the 'husband review' with flying colours! - 29 Sep 2008
