Salmon Pasta Salad Recipe

I picked up this colourful bow pasta in Rome last month and couldn’t resist incorporating it into the most colourful dish I have ever made.

This recipe is quick and easy to make, it is a crowd pleaser and is served in a large dish so everyone can help themselves.

 Colourful pasta or not, this is one tasty dish. I love the mixture of fresh and cooked ingredients.
It takes 25 minutes to cook from start-to-finish and is not hard to make at all.
