Pasta salad gets a bad wrap but can be made in a way that nourishes and helps your body to feel good. So I thought lets take a break from the traditional creamy dressings and go for something simple, made from things that most of us have in the cupboard.

Don't have all the ingredients? Don't worry, just add what ever crunchy veg you need to use up. Enjoy!





  • 125g pasta

  • 250 g cherry tomatoes

  • 1 avocado, diced

  • 1 green capsicum, diced

  • 1 large cucumber, diced

  • 150g snow peas

  • 1 tub of mini bocconcini


  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 1/4 cup garlic olive oil

  • 2 tbls white vigegar

  • 2 tbls water

  • 1 tsp dried oregano

  • 1 tsp dried basil

  • Pepper, to taste
