Sophisticated, cool, light and delicious. A pasta salad you can proudly present at any barbeque or picnic. Sautéed courgettes (zucchini), refreshing cucumber, tasty smoked salmon and a light and fragrant dressing with Greek yogurt, horseradish and lemon.
I love this dish. I love pasta in general, but this is something quite special. It’s best served at room temperature or just barely warm, which makes it ideal for picnics on the beach, or garden barbeques, or light dinners on the verandah on warm summer nights. The flavours all complement each other perfectly, coming together to make a big bowl of deliciousness that you won’t want to share. I mean, smoked salmon with dill and lemon? Lightly sautéed courgettes and cucumbers with yogurt? The combination of all of these works brilliantly.
If you need another motive to try this out, check out the instructions. It’s a throw-together kind of dish that takes just minutes to prepare. Plus, it tastes better when it’s had a chance to sit for a while. And what does that mean? Yes, the perfect make-ahead pasta salad.
So what’s your favourite pasta salad?
