Curried Pasta Salad

The summer days might be coming to an end but that’s not going to stop me enjoying delicious pasta salads. This curried pasta salad brings together wonderful curry flavours that wrap around each piece of pasta.

I love to pack up this curried pasta salad and enjoy it at lunch time. It can also be a great accompaniment to a summer BBQ – simply increase the ingredients as required. This recipe serves one.

To make this recipe gluten-free, use your favourite gluten-free pasta and proceed as normal. The addition of smoked salmon in this recipe can be amazing too.

Hope you enjoy!
