  • Pasta Salad:
  • 220g / 2 cups macaroni or other pasta
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1015 strawberries
  • 4 tbsp sweetcorn
  • Dressing:
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • juice of 1/2 lime


  1. Cook the pasta in a pan of boiling water for 8 -10 minutes or accordingly to the package instructions.
  2. When cooked, drain away the water and, keeping the pasta in the colander or strainer, run under cold water until it has cooled.
  3. Prepare the remaining ingredients by chopping the avocado, pepper and strawberries into small pieces. Mix together with the pasta in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper if desired.
  4. Add the olive oil and lime juice to a jar with a lid and shake until well combined. You can pour this directly onto the pasta salad or serve it on the side instead.
