Fresh or leftover pasta goes great in a pasta salad whether as a main or a side dish. There are recipes perfect for a light meal, side or a barbecue.
This is a fairly plain pasta salad with lots of crunch - I make it as a BBQ salad cos it's big and it's simple - so everyone can eat it. Add more dressing if you think it needs it. Chilling before you serve it helps the flavour but I don't serve it cold.
A warm pasta salad with spinach, feta and and black olives. Wilt the spinach by pouring the pasta water over it. I usually serve this warm but it makes a good cold salad as well.
This seven-layer salad is a really refreshing, flavourful salad that I simply love and that my friends request at barbecues. Its like a meal in itself!
This pasta salad is different! It is based on tomato like Spanish gazpacho soup but has a lime dressing and kick from green chilli.
This is a great pasta to serve in summer when you don't want a hot meal. Ripe tomatoes, fresh basil and garlic are key.
