Pasta Salad

IMG_1040

Another Sunday . And a day too precious to be wasted. So far, in my student days Sundays were all about going out for movies,shopping,dinners etc. But now with a tight week-day schedule and work on Saturdays as well, most of the Sundays i am too tired or lazy to want to move.So we decided to order pizza and cook the side dish and dessert on our own.Cooking is a good stress buster they say…..

The Pasta Salad is pretty easy,however the original recipe i had read in a magazine won’t suit every taste bud.It has some sour element with quite a bit of garlicky heat.So we added honey in our version to tone it down. Here is my version of the recipe.

  1.  Pasta
  2.  Boiled vegetables like Capsicum,Broccoli,Mushroom,Baby corn
  3. Boiled Chicken if you want
  4. Garlic paste
  5. Mustard Paste
  6. Pinch of salt
  7. A spoon of oil
  8. Vinegar
  9. Honey

Use the garlic paste,mustard paste,salt,oil vinegar to make a smooth sauce.In a big bowl mix with the rest.Pour a little honey from top according to taste. And the healthy Pasta Salad is ready. And that is the best part about it. No butter,no cheese. However if you want a little less healthy version try the following:

Honey Mustard Mayo Sauce

Add mayonnaise mustard and honey together and add very little amount of garlic to it.Use this as your pasta sauce.

This went quite well with our olive cheese and chicken pizza.Very good for people who are trying to lose some weight.
