Pupil’s Pasta Salad

I like pasta salads, more substance and make sure you keep the salad dressing separate so that it doesn't fall out of the tupperware all over their books and cases. It always amazes me that a fresh lettuce salad looks "ois geshlept" by the time it’s small break, even if you don’t put salad dressing on it. Somehow it still leaks in your schoolbag! This salad always stood the test of time or was it that I had just discovered Ziploc bags by then!


  • Prep Time : 10 min
  • Ready Time : 10 min


1 serving


  • 2 cups cooked pasta (I use bow tie or spiral)
  • Handful chopped fried chicken/steak/cold meat*
  • Handful chopped carrots
  • Handful chopped celery
  • Handful cherry tomatoes
  • Handful chopped cucumbers
  • Handful fresh/frozen corn
  • Handful chopped peppers
  • Handful chopped onion
  • Handful chopped mushrooms
  • Handful fresh/frozen peas
  • Handful spring onion
  • Handful raw peanuts if allowed
  • Handful of anything your child may enjoy
  • And finally a handful of love!
  • Salad Dressing (favorite mixed with mayo)


Mix all the vegetables together, sprinkle with a pinch of salt or Herbamare then add the pasta and a little salad dressing (just enough to make the pasta glisten) and fold gently so as not to break the pasta. Send extra salad dressing in a small airtight container to add on at school. (Don’t forget a plastic fork!)

Salad dressing

You can use your favourite salad dressing (homemade or off the shelf) mixed with some mayonnaise. I do a 3 Tbl salad dressing to 1 Tbl mayonnaise ratio. Make up a cup of dressing and keep it in the fridge and use as needed.

*Tip: Meat can be substituted with smoked salmon canned salmon or tuna.​
