Here’s something a little different from the standard pasta salad, I kicked it up a notch with the addition of a five bean mix. It’s adds a nice touch as well as making the salad a little more wholesome and healthy.
I know pasta salad tends to be more of a summer BBQ dish, but we’ve been having such beautiful weather here lately, cool air and warm sun. I was also going to say that it’s a great autumnal dish, but apparently it’s already Winter. How did that happen?
- 250 go pasta
- 2 cans four/five bean mix
- 1 capsicum (I used a 1/3 each of red, green and yellow)
- 1/4 red onion
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1/3 cup French salad dressing
- 1/4 tsp salt (or to taste)
Cook your pasta as per packet instructions, make sure your pasta is aldente, soggy pasta is no good for a pasta salad. Finely dice your onion and chop your capsicum into tiny cubes. Make your dressing by mixing together the mayonnaise, salad dressing and salt. In a bowl combine your pasta, canned beans, onion and capsicum. Drizzle on the dressing and give it all a good mix.
