Try this for a winter salad! With pasta, beans and chicken, this becomes a meal fit for a cold-weather lunch or dinner. We love the delish flavour of feta throughout
- 375 g small pasta shells
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 200 g green beans, trimmed, halved
- 400 g shredded roasted chicken breast
- 400 g canned butter beans, drained, rinsed
- 1 cup drained, semi-sundried tomatoes in oil
- ½ cup fresh parsley
- 100 g soft feta, crumbled
- ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 2 tsp brown sugar
- Cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling, salted water until tender. Drain. Transfer to a large bowl with 1 tbsp of the oil. Toss to coat.
- Meanwhile, make dressing. Combine all ingredients in a small jug with remaining oil. Add salt and pepper, to taste. Whisk well.
- Boil, steam or microwave green beans until tender. Drain.
- Add shredded chicken, green beans, butter beans, tomatoes, parsley and dressing to pasta. Toss to combine. Sprinkle with feta. Serve.
For a change, replace sun-dried tomatoes with 250g punnet halved cherry tomatoes.
As pasta will absorb dressing on standing, add it just before serving.
