It is technically a salad but practically a meal in its own right! The Primavera Salad is an easy and quick yet sumptuous preparation of cooked fusilli tossed together with crunchy lettuce, fresh and vibrant veggies and a refreshing curd-based dressing with celery and spring onion greens. Don’t forget the dash of pepper before you stash this into the refrigerator for a while! Try this on a hot summer’s day and you will want to keep repeating the experience – it beats hot, steaming food hands down.

The dressing is spot on... deliciously palatable.. this recipe has a great combination of textures... the crunch from the lettuce the smoothness from the dressing and the pasta and the volume from cherry tomatoes and the broccoli.. very refreshing and a great appetizer..
