Summer Pasta Salad / Καλοκαιρινή σαλάτα με ζυμαρικά

Who doesn’t love pasta? I could eat pasta every day and never get bored. We are in the middle of August here in Cyprus and the temperature is at it’s highest, so eating hot pasta is not really ideal. But a pasta salad loaded with delicious fresh ingredients is perfect for a lunch or light supper. Plus this is so quick and easy to make, which makes it all that more appealing!

 

This salad is super easy to transport which makes it a great pack and go meal. Whether to take with you to the beach, for work or even as a side dish for a braai (BBQ).  Its loaded with my favourite veggies…sweetcorn, broccoli, sundried tomatoes…etc. The dressing is really great and refreshing. I highly recommend using pomegranate molasses (can be found in Alpha Mega), but normal molasses works just as well. I’ve tried both. I really hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
