    Pasta bows taste deliciously different when combined with an exotic dressing of fish sauce, fresh red chilli and rice vinegar in a moist chicken salad. Fresh crunchy vegetables complete this well-balanced main-course dish.

    This Mediterranean-style pasta salad is a summer favourite with us. It has pine nuts, feta, olives and fresh basil.

    This is a tasty side dish, best served after a couple of hours refrigeration. Great if you need to bring a salad for a BBQ. I always make it for Christmas lunch.

    You haven't had a pasta salad like this one! So different from the usual Italian dressing pasta salads.

    This is an easy salad for hot summer nights and barbecues, and actually it's great in any season. You can substitute cooked roast beef slices or prawns for the chicken.
