This is my first time posting here but I thought I really had to share this recipe for Mediterranean Pasta Salad as part of the Mediterranean diet my mum has just started for her heart issues (recommended by the cardiologist):

4 cups dried farfalle pasta
1 small barbecued chicken, skin and
bones removed, shredded
250g cherry tomatoes on vines
1 lebanese cucumber, halved, sliced
1 red capsicum, sliced
1 small red onion, sliced
1 cup fresh basil leaves, shredded
1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, torn
2/3 cup pitted kalamata olives
1/3 cup pine nuts, toasted
1/3 cup (80ml) red wine vinegar
1/4 cup (60ml) extra virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, crushed

Method Notes
Step 1
Cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling, salted water following packet directions until tender. Drain. Rinse under cold water. Drain.
Step 2
Place the pasta, chicken, tomato, cucumber, capsicum, onion, basil, parsley, olives and pine nuts in a large bowl.
Step 3
Make dressing: place vinegar, oil and garlic in a screw-top jar. Season with pepper. Secure lid and shake to combine.
Step 4
Pour the dressing over salad and toss to combine. Serve.

I also love to serve this with a little dollop of Greek yoghurt and add a little palm sugar to the dressing to give it something and take away the bitterness.

Anyway - enjoy!! Post a reply if u try it and love it - my whole family do as it is nice and fresh and a little different!
