Pasta salads are the perfect way to use in season greens, like asparagus! Follow our recipe for an oil-free green dressing that will take your salad game to the next level. 

When boiling pasta always use a large pot, with plenty of water. Add enough salt to the water that it tastes like the sea (yes, it’s a lot!) Check your pasta sooner than suggested on the packet instructions, as you want it to still have a little ‘bite’ so that it’s cooked ‘al dente’.
