When my family is having a BBQ, there’s one thing that always has to be a part of it: pasta salad. In our family, it is traditionally prepared with a yogurt dressing as well as peas, carrots and sausage. Reaaaally yummy but also quite rich. It won’t leave much space in your stomach for all those other delicious things on the grill.
So today I’ll show you a Mediterranean alternative with dried tomatoes, rocket and mozzarella – super quick and delicious!
Mediterranean pasta salad
makes 2-4 servings
- 200 g pasta
- 1 pack mini Mozzarella
- 50 g dried soft tomatoes
- 50 g rocket
- 6 tbsp olive oil
- 4 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 2 tbsp honey
- Italian herb mix
- Salt, pepper
Cook the pasta according to the instructions, then drain and set aside.
Cut the mozzarella and the dried tomatoes. Wash the rocket and chop roughly. Combine the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, herbs and some water to prepare a dressing, season with salt and pepper.
Mix everything with the pasta, let it infuse for about an hour and serve.
