About this recipe: This is a light summery pasta salad that I love because the flavours go so well together. Lemon juice and a drizzle of good olive oil finish everything off nicely. It does taste best when chilled for 1 or 2 hours.


Serves: 4 

  • 250g (9 oz) farfalle pasta
  • 90g (3 oz) fresh steamed asparagus
  • 30g (1 oz) smoked salmon, chopped
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pistachio nuts
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
