Pasta Cherry Tomato and Cucumber Salad

I always prefer the old fashioned grainy Dijon mustard to the smooth one. It’s a matter of personal choice so you can use whichever suits you. We really enjoyed this salad.

Please assemble ingredients before you start

Whisk all dressing ingredients together and season with salt and pepper to taste.
