Coles Classic Pasta Salad

Pasta salad was a staple in our high school canteen. It was simple with pasta, car­rot and corn tossed with may­on­naise. D loved it then, for­got about it for over a dec­ade, and recently developed a crav­ing for it. With a need to sati­ate that crav­ing now, we picked up this ready-to-eat Coles Classic Pasta Salad with macar­oni, grated car­rot, shal­lots, cap­sic­um and onion.

D enjoyed the tangi­ness of the salad dress­ing but found the tex­ture of the pasta less al dente and the fla­vour of onion and shal­lot more pro­nounced than he’d like. He’d have enjoyed more sweet­ness the salad with more car­rot and the addi­tion of corn ker­nels. At $4.00 for a small size we expec­ted more than just pasta.

This pack­age of Coles Classic Pasta Salad con­tained one small serving. It was pro­duced in Australia and pur­chased in Sydney, Australia in 2017.
