My family loves a good pesto pasta salad as a side to any main meal. If you have ever been to my house for dinner, or I’ve brought food to yours, then you have probably had a pesto pasta salad. Its easy to make and super delicious. Experiment with what you add. Other options include chopped tomatoes, broccoli, peas or a colour mix of peppers to add lots of colour. Veggies can be cooked or raw for a different taste and texture. Add some chicken to make it a meal. So many options, but always so delicious!

Salmon is definitely a super food full of good fats and protein! Try this recipe that gives it a bit of a kick. Feel free to substitute the coriander for parsley or spinach if coriander isn’t your thing. Try to get wild caught salmon wherever possible.
