    What to do

  • 1. Cook the pasta in boiling salted water until al dente, then drain and set aside.

  • 2. Place the cauliflower and broccoli in a food processor and blitz to a fine crumb. Alternatively, you can dice both vegetables very finely.

  • 3. To make the dressing, place all of the ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  • 4. Place the cooked pasta, cauliflower and broccoli, carrot, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, salmon and dressing into a large bowl and toss gently to combine.

  • 5. Divide between serving bowls and top with cracked pepper.
