“This is a wonderful pasta salad which I have been making for at least 15 years. In fact when I first moved to Greece and my mother visited me a year later, one of the first things she asked me was about how to make this recipe. I have made it for buffets and even for my engagement party and it tastes as good as it looks which is saying something! Enjoy.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil pasta in a large pot of salted water until firm. (I always add a stock cube to the water to improve the flavour-Maggi pasta stock cubes are ideal.).
  2. Boil or microwave the peas until tender.
  3. Add drained pasta, peas, parsley and ham in a large bowl and toss well.
  4. Shake dressing ingredients together in a jam jar and pour over pasta salad.
  5. Add parmesan cheese and serve.
  6. Note: This tastes great the next day.
