This is my favourite pasta salad! Cucumber, celery and smoked salmon with a lemon-mayonnaise dressing. Add a little cayenne if you like spice.


Serves: 6 

  • 350g fusilli pasta
  • 1 small carrot, grated
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup diced cucumber
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 250g smoked salmon, cut into 2cm dice
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Stir in the pasta; return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, until the pasta has cooked through but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain well and rinse with cold water. Transfer cooled pasta to a large bowl.
  2. Toss the carrot, onion, cucumber, celery and salmon with the pasta; mix well.
  3. Combine the mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper in a small bowl; mix well. Pour sauce over pasta mixture. Mix well to coat evenly.
