Zesty Macaroni Salad

I loved the fresh taste of this pasta salad. The dressing is lovely and zingy with the lime juice and it is perfect for a summer picnic.

Zesty Macaroni Salad (from Eats Well With Others)
(Serves 4)

200g dried macaroni
juice and zest 1 lime
bunch coriander, chopped
4 tbsp salsa
3 tbsp sour cream or yoghurt
2 tsp ground cumin
½ tsp ground pepper
2 peppers (any colour)
60g cheddar cheese, grated
4 spring onions, chopped

Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the pasta according to packet instructions. Drain, rinse under the cold tap, and drain again.

In a large bowl, whisk together the lime zest and juice, coriander, salsa, sour cream, cumin and pepper.

Add the pasta, peppers, cheese and onions to the dressing, and toss to combine. Pack into a lunchbox or serve.
