Simple Pasta Salad

A simple pasta salad is a perfect accompaniment to pretty much any meat dish – it is particularly good during the Summer months as you can make a huge batch and just let everyone help themselves.


  1. Heat a frypan over medium heat. Brush the chicken with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and cook for a few mins on each side or until just cooked through. Slice and place in a large bowl.

  2. Meanwhile, cook pasta as per packet instructions and once cooked rinse the pasta under cold water to stop it cooking or going gluggy. Transfer to a large bowl, add the olive oil, salt and pepper and toss together.

  3. Add all remaining ingredients to the bowl and mix together.

Pasta is a healthy food that is simple to make with or without meat. It has a low glycemic index, which means that it does not cause spikes in blood sugar levels. Pasta is also a good source of complex carbohydrates, which are an important part of a healthy diet.

Feel free to leave out the meat in this recipe and just use it the salad as a base.

You can also really have any meat in the salad – in fact any leftover meat would work really well especially if this is going to be a main meal rather than a side dish.
