Cold Pasta Sald - with Fruits & Nuts

  
Ingredients
Pasta[any kind]-1/2cup 
Curd-1/2 cup 
Pepper powder-1/2teaspoon
Frozen corn kennels-1tablespoon
Cucumber(small)-1
Small portion of a Green capsicum
One small apple
Lemon juice from half of a lemon
Few sweet peppers(yellow & red)
Sugar-2teaspoons
Salt - to taste
To garnish
Dates-4
Cashew-Almonds & Walnuts - Few

Method
Gather all the ingredients needed..
 
Cook the pasta according to the instruction in the pack. Mine took 10 minutes in boiling water.
Drain the water, wash it with cold water and keep it aside. The size of the chopped veggies - fruits  and pasta should be of same size. As I have used Farfalle pasta, I cut them into half (once they cool down). This step is optional, if you are using any small variety pasta, you don't have to cut it.
  
Chop all the veggies. Microwave the frozen corn for 30 seconds. 
Mix lemon juice with apple immediately after slicing it. 
Combine curd-sweet peppers-cucumber-capsicum-sugar-pepper-salt.
 
Mix everything well, and add in the pasta. Combine with the curd mixture,check the seasoning, close the bowl with a cling wrap and refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
  
While serving, top the pasta salad with roughly chopped nuts and dates.
Healthy and delicious cold pasta salad is ready.
The sweetness of the apples, dates and the crunchiness of peppers-capsicum-cucumber and nuts, its a perfect filling meal by itself.
