Instructions

  1. We prefer to rehydrate the sun-dried tomatoes soaking them in hot water for 10 to 15 minutes or until they’re soft, but feel free to use sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil.
  2. Cook the pasta according to package directions.
  3. Chop olives and sun-dried tomatoes. Set aside.
  4. To make the pesto, just blend all the ingredients in a food processor or a blender for 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Combine all the salad ingredients: pasta (it should be cold or at least at room temperature, but not hot), olives, sun-dried tomatoes and pesto.
  6. You can serve the salad immediately, although we prefer it cold, so we keep it in the fridge for at least 1 or 2 hours.
  7. Store the pesto pasta salad in the fridge in a sealed container for 3 to 4 days.
