Simple Pasta Salad

Ingredients:
3 cups cooked
Pipette pasta
1 ½ - 2 Tbsp mayonnaise (I used Hellmann’s light mayo)
1 Tbsp sweet relish
½ cup cucumber, diced
½ onion, finely chopped
¼ cup chopped scallions (I used only the green part)
Salt & pepper to taste.

Method:
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, add the pasta, and cook according to the package instructions or until al dente.(8-12 minutes in this case) Drain and rinse with cold water till completely cool.

While the pasta’s cooking and cooling, get the other ingredients ready.

In a large serving bowl, add the pasta and the remaining ingredients. Mix till well combined.

Chill and serve.

This is also being sent to Ruth who hosts the weekly event,
Presto Pasta Nights.

Love this salad. Nice picture. I just usually add some vegetables, as my daughter will eat pasta in any form and I can get her to eat her share of veggies!!
BTW, where in Kochi are your parents?
