Hello everyone ! Today’s recipe is ‘Pasta Salad’. This is one of my favourite salad recipe. I love the combination of all flavours that this dish offer – salty, tangy and sweet. Pasta salads are usually served chilled in vinegar, oil or mayonnaise based dressing. This salad is in mayonnaise dressing with boiled elbow macaroni. You can have this dish as main course or appetizer or side dish.
