    [Braai Side] Pasta Salad

    I discovered and altered this delicious pasta salad recipe when I had to make a huge salad to bring to a birthday bring and braai a while ago. I like changing recipes around to work for me and this recipe makes one HUGE salad and it’s super fast to make. The salad was a big hit and now it has a spot in my recipe archives! I half it when I make it as a side for a braai or dinner at home, but it’s the perfect amount for when you have friends over.
