Salads aren't only side dishes or accompaniments to mains - a good salad can be a feature dish in itself! A fresh salad meal gives you the opportunity to combine lots of different flavours and textures in one bowl.
- Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil and cook pasta for 8 to 10 minutes or until just tender.
- Drain pasta and drizzle with olive oil. Shake to separate pieces. Allow to cool to room temperature.
- Place pasta in a large bowl and add sliced chorizo, kalamata olives, roughly chopped sundried tomatoes, cubed tasty cheese and chopped parsley.
- Mix together balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper and 2 tablespoon oil from the sundried tomatoes and 2 tablespoon oil then drizzle over salad.
