Ingredients

Pasta Salad

Dressing

Instructions

  • Cook pasta according to the packet instructions in boiling salt water until al dente. Drain, toss with some olive oil if desired, and set aside to cool for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, chop the remaining salad ingredients and mix all ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl.
  • Combine everything in a large serving bowl and toss until well combined. Season to taste with salt and pepper!

Notes

  • Make-Ahead: This salad can be made up to one day in advance. Store it in the refrigerator until 30 minutes before serving. However, I suggest adding the rocket right before serving.
  • Keeps fresh for 3 days. Store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. 
  • Olives: Kalamata olives are one of the best and most flavorful olives you can get. Feel free to substitute with other olives you like. I always buy them pitted. No need to wash the olives, the saltiness adds some extra flavor.
  • Low FODMAP: This recipe (1 portion a day) is suitable for a low FODMAP diet IF you swap pasta with gluten-free pasta, omit the shallot, or swap it with the green part of one scallion, and reduce the sundries tomatoes to 8g per portion.
