Corkscrew pasta salad Friday, Aug 5 2011 


Sometimes the beauty is in the simplicity and this is the case with this amazing straight forward pasta salad. The fact that it is called a ‘corkscrew pasta salad’ makes it even more inviting to open a bottle of Slightly Sweet Legacy Johannisberger  with this salad.



  • 2 cups fusilli or corkscrew pasta
  • 2 cups chopped spinach
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes (halved)
  • 120g fresh mozzarella, cut into pieces
  • 60 g salami, cut into pieces
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  •  salt and black pepper



 – Cook pasta according to the package directions; drain and rinse under cold water. Toss in a large bowl with the spinach, grape tomatoes, mozzarella, and salami.

-Whisk together the olive oil, white wine vinegar, ½ teaspoon kosher salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Transport the pasta mixture and vinaigrette separately; drizzle the salad with the vinaigrette before serving.
