[Braai Side] Pasta Salad

[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.

      Let me know how it goes! It’s super easy, I’ve even reduced the amount of oil before and I’m sure you can sub it for olive oil as well 🙂
