Pasta salad is one of the traditional Italian dishes. Such an original side dish can be prepared in various variations: with cheese, vegetables, meat, sausage. Ordinary vegetable oil, mayonnaise, yogurt, sour cream or homemade sauces based on them are suitable as a dressing. The dish always turns out not only tasty, but also very satisfying.

For our today’s salad, we used canned corn, boiled chicken and quail eggs. For dressing – olive oil. It turned out delicious.

  • Step 2

    We wash the chicken fillet, cut it into medium-sized pieces and send them to the second pan. Add bay leaf, salt, cook until tender.

  • Step 3

    Bring water to a boil in a third pot, add farfalle and salt. Boil pasta for 5-7 minutes. Ready bows are thrown back on a sieve or colander.

  • Step 4

    Peel the boiled eggs and cut each one in half. We cut into cubes completely chilled chicken fillet and thin square slices of cheese.

  • Step 5

    We combine the prepared products in one bowl. We also add ready-made farfalle there.

    Salt, pepper to taste, pour in olive oil. At the end, pour in the canned corn and mix.

Tips & variations

  • Only pasta made from durum wheat is suitable for making salad. Any others simply won't keep their shape.

  • For a salad, you need to choose pasta of the correct shape, such as horns, bows, spirals.

  • It is important to cook pasta properly. You can’t use overcooked products in a salad; it’s better not to overcook a little.

  • Pasta should be boiled in moderately salted water, as after that it will still be washed.

  • Salad can be flavored not only with salt and black pepper, spices will give it a brighter taste.

  • To prevent pasta from sticking together after washing with water, you can add a spoonful of vegetable oil to them and mix.

  • Olive oil is used for dressing. However, it is permissible to replace it with low-fat sour cream or natural yogurt.

  • It is advisable to prepare pasta salads immediately before the arrival of guests. If such a dish sits for too long, the pasta will absorb all the sauce, swell and lose its taste.
