When you stop eating potato salad, you look for a gajillion alternatives to pasta salad, because let’s face it, beans salad just doesn’t cut it.
So today we had a brunch braai and chickpea pasta salad it was.
Boil half a packet of pasta (your choice of shape, bowtie, macaroni etc.)
In a bowl add:
1/4 cup mayonnaise
juice of 2 limes
1/2 tsp crushed garlic
1/2 tsp chopped green chilli
1/4 cup chopped robot peppers (optional)
handful of torn basil leaves
1 tin of chickpeas – drained
Combine and toss pasta into bowl. Mix well. Chill and serve, add a final sprinkle of lime juice for a little extra kick 🙂
easy, peasy……my favourite kinda cooking style
