This oregano-flavoured tangy, crunchy macaroni salad is an evergreen favourite with pasta lovers. The dressing features an interesting combination of ingredients like herbs, garlic, chilli flakes, pine nuts and lemon juice.
Unlike the oily nature of most dressings, this healthier option uses only 1 tsp of oil, and that too olive oil. Olive is considered very good as it is rich in MUFA (Mono unsaturated Fatty Acids) and is beneficial for the heart. This salad provides lots of vitamin C and fibre as it contains capsicum, bean sprouts and tomatoes.
- Combine all the salad ingredients together in a bowl and mix well. Refrigerate to chill.
- Just before serving, add the dressing and toss well.
- Serve chilled garnished with the olives.
- It is highly recommended that this recipe be relished by diabetics only occasionally and in small quantities. This is just a mere ‘treat’ and does not qualify for a regular diabetic menu.
