Creamy pasta salad – gluten free

Creamy pasta salad


This is a lovely salad for the warmer summer months, and the red and green also lend it to a Christmas theme!  By using gluten free pasta and gluten free mayonnaise, it is easy to make this gluten free.


Salad ingredients:

1 packet gluten free pasta (340-360g) – cooked;

3 spring onions, chopped finely;

3 stalks of celery, chopped finely,

1 red capsicum, chopped finely;

3 hardboiled eggs, shelled & chopped roughtly.

Dressing ingredients:

1 cup creamy gluten free mayonnaise (buy a good quality one – you will taste the difference);

2 tablespoons seeded mustard from a jar;

2 tablespoons fruit chutney;

1 tablespoon white sugar;

2 & 1/2 teaspoons white vinegar;

1/2 tsp vegetable salt.


Combine the salad ingredients in a very large bowl.  Combine the dressing ingredients in a separate jug and mix well.  Combine the two and mix well.  Put in the fridge for at least an hour as the warm pasta and eggs will make the dressing a little runny, and you need it to chill and thicken a little before serving.
