    Mediterranean spaghetti salad in avocado chive dressing

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes 25 minutes

    Serves: 4

    Ingredients

    ½ x 500g pack Waitrose Wholewheat Spaghetti
    1 medium courgette, halved and sliced into 1cm pieces
    Spray olive oil
    1 avocado, peeled and stoned
    ½ x 25g pack chives, chopped, plus extra
    to serve
    3 tbsp white wine vinegar
    Juice of 1 lime
    135g cherry vine tomatoes, quartered
    40g essential Waitrose Sliced Black Olives
    120g Greek light salad cheese

     

    Method

    1. Bring a pan of water to the boil. Snap the spaghetti in half and cook for 8-10 minutes. Meanwhile, sauté the courgette in about 6 sprays of oil for 5 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside to cool.

    2. Strain the spaghetti and run cold water over it until completely cooled. Transfer to a large bowl and place in the freezer to chill while you make the dressing. In a food processor blend the avocado, chives, vinegar and lime juice until smooth then season.

    3. Remove the spaghetti from the freezer and toss in the avocado dressing until evenly coated. Gently mix in the tomatoes, courgette and olives and serve topped with roughly crumbled cheese and extra chopped chives.

    Cook’s tip As a variation, why not try using 100g drained, chopped sundried tomatoes in place of the cherry vine tomatoes.
