Cameron goes mediterranean and shows dads how to make a lamb pasta salad

When I think of Mediterranean food I think olive oil, pasta, lamb, and semi sun-dried tomatoes. But mostly I think its ‘light’ food and full of great flavours and this recipe doesn’t fail to deliver. Add it to the BBQ table as a side dish or as a main on its own. Other than cooking the pasta its about 10min prep work!


  • 375g Dry Penne Pasta


  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2tbs lemon juice
  • 2tbs red wine vinegar
  • 2tbs water
  • 2ts garlic, mince
  • 2ts dried oregano
  • 1ts dried basil
  • Cracked pepper to taste


  • Good handful of Cos lettuce
  • 1 large Cucumber, diced
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • ½ large red capsicum, thin sliced
  • 250grams cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 100grams semi sun-dried tomatoes
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup pitted kalamata olives
  • 100g feta cheese diced


  1. Boil the Pasta till al dente (just cooked). Drain and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking and cool the pasta
  2. Whilst Pasta is cooking get the dressing happening. In a jar whisk all the dressing ingredients.
  3. Add all the salad ingredient and pasta into a large bowl and pour over dressing. Gently toss together until the dressing is coating everything.
  4. Serve up.
