My sister always made this tamatiesous pasta salad whenever we had family gatherings. I absolutely loved it – simply could not get enough. I never knew how she made it or how it came to be so utterly delicious until I went through my mother’s recipe books one day and found the recipe. I was super surprised that this salad not only contained an insane amount of sugar, but also curry powder!
I added a few twists (garlic and sriracha) to suit my wacky tastebuds and I only use whatever pepper I have at hand (green, yellow or red doesn’t really matter), but the nostalgia is still there every time I make the salad. It will still remind me of a time when we all gathered around the table, whether it be Christmas or Mother’s day or Father’s day or simply Sunday.
It is super easy to make and the longer it stands the more flavour develops. Best eaten the day after you’ve made it.
