If a kiwi summer for you means sun, backyard cricket and a barbecue, make sure you serve a yummy pasta salad like our asparagus and salmon recipe.

Ingredients

  • 250 g Healtheries Simple Spirals
  • 100 g asparagus
  • 1 red onion, finely sliced
  • 185 g can salmon, dried and flaked
  • 1 red or yellow pepper, cut into chunks
  • 12 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup black olives, optional
  • 1 tbsp Italian parsley leaves
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp Honey
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Preparation

  1. Cook pasta following the directions on the back of the pack. While pasta is cooking prepare salad.
  2. Blanch asparagus in boiling water for 2 mins. Drain then plunge into cold water so they retain their colour and don't overcook.
  3. Place pasta, red onion, salmon, red and yellow pepper, tomatoes and olives (if used), into a salad bowl, add dressing and toss gently.
  4. Scatter the Italian parsley leaves on top, and then serve immediately.

Serve with a fresh green salad with some olive oil drizzled lightly on top.
