Simple Pasta Salad
11 oz small pasta, shells
3 cloves garlic
9 oz yellow cherry tomato
9 oz red cherry tomato
1/2 cucumber
1 handful black olives, pitted
2 tbsp fresh chives
1 handful fresh basil
7 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
4 tbsp white wine vinegar
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and throw in the pasta and garlic and simmer for about 5 minutes or until al dente, and drain. Put the garlic to one side for the dressing.

Put the pasta in a bowl. Cut all the ingredients in to small pieces, about half the size of the pasta, and place in the round metal container. Roughly chop the herbs and place these in the container.

Using a fork mash the cooked garlic cloves on the board with a little salt, add to the salad. Add the oil and vinegar and seasoning
