Ingredients

For the salad

  • 150 grams dried pasta 2 cups
  • 12 cherry tomatoes halved
  • 12 grapes halved
  • 125 grams light mozzarella 4 and 1/2 ounces
  • 5 large fresh basil leaves

Dressing

  • 1 tablespoon double / heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • salt and pepper to taste.

Instructions

For the salad

  • Bring a medium sized pan of water to the boil and add the pasta to it, after 10 minutes take the pasta off the heat drain it and run it under cold water to cool it down quickly.
  • While the pasta is cooking chop the cherry tomatoes and grapes in half and tear the mozzarella into small pieces.
  • Shred the basil leaves into thin strips.
  • Once the pasta is cooked and cold toss in the other ingredients and mix it all up.

For the dressing

  • In a small bowl mix the cream, extra virgin olive oil, maple syrup and salt and pepper to taste.
  • You may need to be vigorous in your mixing so all the ingredients combine and don't separate.
  • Pour the dressing over the salad and serve.

Notes

Without the dressing this salad will keep in the fridge for 3 days. Once the dressing is on the salad eat it within 2 days.
