This is an Italian recipe, very nice for the summer months! It has cucumber in it, which I don't like, but my husband does, so I just add cucumber to his individual portion!
A Vietnamese-inspired sauce made with coriander, chillies, lime juice, fish sauce and sugar is tossed with rice noodles, cucumber, shredded cabbage and carrots.
A delightful summer pasta salad. Lime-tomato dressing with minced chillies gives it a kick.
Great summer pasta salad.
This makes a healthy, colourful and filling lunch, served on top of lettuce.
This seven-layer salad takes some inspiration from the salads they sell at Boots or M&S (pasta shells and julienned carrots) and some inspiration from my gran (curry powder and brown sugar). This makes a really refreshing, flavourful salad that I simply love and that my friends request at barbecues!
Japanese soba (buckwheat) noodles are marinated in tamari, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, sugar and chilli oil, then tossed with julienned carrots and red peppers for a delicious cold salad with an Asian touch.
Penne pasta is tossed with tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers and black olives, then dressed in lemon juice and olive oil.
This is such a flavourful, nutty, fresh tasting pasta salad. I always serve it at my parties. I think it's the combination of fresh spinach, the crispy bacon and the pine nuts that make it so good.
This recipe comes from my Italian grandmother. It was always one of my favourites. It's best if you chill it overnight.
