Pasta Salad
  1. Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until tender. Drain. Rinse under cold water. Cool.
  2. Cook eggs in a saucepan of boiling water for 6 minutes for medium softness. Remove with a slotted spoon and cool in cold water. Peel. Cut in half.
  3. Place pasta in a large bowl with remaining ingredients except eggs. Add half of the dressing and stir until combined. Arrange in a serving bowl with eggs nestled in amongst salad. Sprinkle with chilli if using. Drizzle with remaining dressing.
Tips & Hints:
  • Use Solanato or Perino tomatoes available from supermarkets
  • We used chipotle hot sauce which was not spicy but you can use any of your favourite or even a Mexican salsa. For added spice, add a fresh finely chopped jalapeno to salad.
  • Salad can be made up the day ahead without the dressing, avocado or eggs. Stir through a good drizzle of olive oil to keep pasta separated. Cover and refrigerate salad then add dressing, avocado and eggs when ready to serve.
