5 Step Tomato Relish Pasta Salad


Perfect for lunch or that side dish your needing to complete your dinner spread this pasta salad is very versatile, quick and full of flavour.  Using a mixture of wholegrain mustard, homemade tomato relish and Best Foods mayo  in the dressing it gives a zingy sweet dressing that gives the perfect consistency to coat the pasta. 

With this recipe I tend to make a little more dressing than there is pasta salad because if you make it ahead of time the pasta absorbs the sauce and be sure to give it another mix before serving as the dressing can sneak to the bottom if sits in fridge until serving. 

I whipped this one up to go alongside some bbq chicken drums and lamb koftas we had on the charcoal bbq, just because its not summer doesn’t mean we have to stop barbecuing right??
