Macaroni Potato Salad

I love eating fresh, vegetable salads as a meal in themselves but hubby prefers to have some carbs involved. He says that if he eats just a salad for lunch, it fills him up quickly, but then he gets hungry again very soon. So I've started adding a bit of pasta into my salads to add body to them and that's been a nice compromise.

I used macaroni here because I'd run out of penne but it worked out nicely enough for me to try again even when I have regular pasta around. The texture of the macaroni goes well with this soft and filling salad.

Macaroni Potato Salad

Here are the ingredients, the quantities are completely up to you.

Macaroni - cooked, drained and rinsed in cold water.
Potatoes - boiled and cubed
Fresh Mint - chopped
Carrots - scrubbed clean and grated
Green Chillies - crushed to a paste
Red Chilli Powder
Lime Juice

Toss everything together and serve with freshly crushed pepper and nutritional yeast sprinkled over it.

Enjoy! :)


  1. Hi:

    I just came across your blog while doing some promo work for the upcoming book Main Street Vegan by Victoria Moran. Right now we're working on promoting a new Tumblr page www.mainstreetvegan.tumblr.com where any vegan can post a photo and and complete the sentence "I'm vegan and..." We'd love to get the word out in the vegan community, and show the world what adiverse, healthy, beautiful (and completely normal!) people vegans are. If you'd ever like to share this Tumblr link on your blog it would be much appreciated.

    Thanks so much for your help and I look forward to checking out your blog again in the future!
