Fusilli Salad with Tomatoes, Spinach, Feta & Red Chilli

Comments : 1 Posted in : Food, Recipes on by : Reema Tags: , , , ,

It’s been an amazing summer here in London and one of the best things has been the generous servings of fresh fruits and vegetables I have consumed these past few weeks. It is too hot to eat, perhaps another reason the blog has gone a bit quiet! 😉

I came up with this deliciously cold recipe on a particularly hot day when I wanted pasta but couldn’t face the thought of eating anything warm.  Sweet, juicy cherry tomatoes, freshly chopped spinach, crumbly feta, garlic and red chilli combined with cold fusilli pasta and the simplest dressing of lemon juice and olive oil was just what I needed.

This salad is quite filling and great on its own or as a side salad for your next summer BBQ or picnic!

    that looks SO good! definitely one to try! I’m not a huge of feta cheese but I think crumbled, it would be good. you could also add in some grilled chicken to bulk it up too 😀
