This is my favourite pasta salad recipe. The garlic is optional, but I like it. It also works well with turkey.


Serves: 6 

  • 250g penne
  • 500g cooked ham, cubed
  • 1 large red capsicum, diced
  • 1 large green capsicum, diced
  • 1 large red onion, coarsely chopped
  • 15 small sweet pickles, chopped, juice reserved
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons beef stock granules
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the drained pasta, ham, capsicums, onion, pickles and tomatoes.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, beef stock granules, vinegar, salt, pepper, garlic and 1/2 cup of reserved pickle juice. Fold into the salad and toss gently until evenly coated. Chill overnight to allow the flavours to blend. Serve near room temperature.
