Introduction

This has to be one of my favourite meals in summer because you can eat however much you like and it is a very fresh and light meal to eat in the hot weather when you don't feel like cooking.

Method

Pasta Salad is a community recipe submitted by toowoombagirl and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Basically all you have to do is cook the pasta until al dente drain it and then while it is still in the colander rinse under cold water moving it around with your hands when it is cool enough to touch.
  • Place it in a really big bowl with all of your chopped vegetables and herbs then stir together with some seasoning a couple of good lugs of the olive oil, one slosh of the vinegar and the mayonnaise.
  • Taste it when you've finished stirring because it might need more of one of the dressing ingredients.
