Summer Pasta Salad (vegetarian) / Ljetna salata sa tjesteninom (vegetarijanska)

Nothing beats easy summer meals than salads and pasta. Conveniently, this dish combines both. The recipe below yields huge amount of food and can easily feed a crowd at picnic or barbecue. The salad can hold for a few days in the fridge, but in that case I strongly advise that you store veggies separate from the pasta and the dressing just to prevent them from getting too soggy.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 8 generous servings / 0.73 EUR per serving / 5.80 EUR for all)

For the salad:

1 large purple onion (0.10 EUR)

1 large red bell pepper (0.40 EUR)

4 large cucumbers (1.33 EUR)

500 grams cherry tomatoes (2.00 EUR)

Handful of fresh parskey (0.13 EUR)

8 cups precooked pasta of choice, cooled (0.53 EUR)

For the dressing:

2 cups Greek yogurt (0.93 EUR)

2 tbsp mustard (0.27 EUR)

¼ cup apple cider vinegar (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.07 EUR)

METHOD:

Wash, peel and finely dice all of the veggies. I also discarded the cucumber seeds so the final salad is crunchier, but you do you. To prepare the dressing, whisk together all of the ingredients until smooth and well incorporated. Assemble the salad by tossing together all of the veggies with pasta and dressing. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Serve chilled.

The salad should keep refrigerated for 1-2 days, but as I already said, for best results better store the veggies separate from the dressing.

Nema boljih i lakših ljetnih obroka od salata i tjestenine, a ovo jelo upravo objedinjuje to dvoje. Od ovog ćete recepta dobiti ogromnu količinu hrane sa kojom lako možete nahraniti cijelo mnoštvo na nekom pikniku ili roštilju. Salata će bez problema držati koji dan u frižideru, no svakako vam savjetujem da povrće čuvate odvojeno od tjestenine i dresinga, a sve kako vam se ono ne bi razgnjecalo.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 8 izdašnih porcija / 5,53 kn po porciji / 44,26 kn za sve)

Za salatu:

1 veliki ljubičasti luk (0,75 kn)

1 velika crvena paprika (3,00 kn)

4 velika krastavca (10,00 kn)

500 g cherry rajčica (15,00 kn)

Pregršt svježeg peršina (1,00 kn)

8 šalica kuhane i ohlađene tjestenine po izboru (4,00 kn)

Za dresing:

2 šalice grčkog jogurta (7,00 kn)

2 žlice senfa (2,00 kn)

¼ šalice jabučnog octa (1,00 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

1 žličica svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i fino nasjeckajte svo povrće. Ja sam odlučila izrezati i baciti sjemenke krastavaca da salata bude još hrskavija, ali vi napravite po svojem ukusu. Priredite dresing miješajući sve sastojke dok ne budu jednolični i glatki. Napravite salatu tako da pomiješate svo povrće, tjesteninu i dressing. Kušajte i prilagodite začine. Poslužite ohlađeno.

Salata će vam u hladnjaku držati barem 1-2 dana, ali kako sam već rekla, za najbolje rezultate odvojeno čuvajte povrće i dresing.
