Mediterranean Pasta Salad

Pasta salad recipes are a wonderful side dish for main meals – especially with a good ole South African braai. It’s also an excellent choice for a light meal or a lunchbox meal.

This pesto Caprese inspired salad uses very few ingredients but certainly doesn’t skimp on taste. Whip this up if you’re pressed for time and want to enjoy some bold and simple flavours.

Mediterranean Pasta Salad


  • 1 ½ cups of pasta, cooked
  • 3 Tsp basil pesto
  • 1 Tsp Sunshine D Original Margarine
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¼ tsp garlic
  • Pinch of pepper
  • ½ cup of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ½ cup mozzarella balls


Melt the margarine and mix in the pesto, salt, garlic and pepper. Toss in with the pasta. Fold in the tomatoes, mozzarella and basil.

Best served as a side dish.

Try changing out the Sunshine D Original Margarine for Sunshine D Lite Fat Spread if you feel like something a little lighter.
