ABOUT Restaurant Style Fruit and Vegetable Summer Pasta Salad RECIPE

I prefer having salads in the hot Indian summers.They make us feel so light and add to our weight loss programs. Apart from the common salad vegetables, salads can be made with pasta and added fruits as well.

  9. 1 tbsp mustard
  10. 1/2 tbsp vinegar
  11. 1 tsp salt(optional)
  12. The fruits and vegetables :

  22. 2 tbsp chopped Parsley/coriander


  1. Heat water and bring to a boil.Add salt and pasta and boil till a little past al dente.
  2. The reason to cook the pasta a little more is that we will be using the pasta for a salad and not stir frying it as in the normal case.So we cook the pasta to our desired softness and toss it with the dressing later.
  3. Drain it in a colander and wash it with cold water so that it stops cooking.Mix olive oil into it and keep aside. Mix all the ingredients for the dressing in a bowl.
  4. Making the Salad : Take a large bowl and add the pasta.Add the fruits and vegetables and pour the dressing on top.Mix well and add the seasoning.Mix again.
  5. Refrigerate for 15 – 20 minutes.
  6. Take out into a salad bowl and garnish with chopped Parsley.Serve immediately.
