Pasta salad

Pasta salad recipes are a wonderful side dish for main meals – especially with a good old South African braai. It’s also an excellent choice for a light meal or a lunchbox meal.

This pesto Caprese inspired salad uses very few ingredients but certainly doesn’t skimp on taste. Whip this up if you’re pressed for time and want to enjoy some bold and simple flavours.   

Prep time: 20 min
