Lunchtime in the Office: Rainbow Pasta Salad

Lunchtime in the Office: Rainbow Pasta Salad

Woman Chopping Salad


With the new year in full swing, most of us are back at work, either in the office or working from home. Whilst it can be tempting to buy lunch everyday from your favourite cafe (guilty!), it's great to take your lunch to work to not only save money, but also suit your meal exactly to your taste buds! We've been loving pasta salads here at the Adrift office because it's cool and refreshing for the summer, but still has that delicious Italian flavour. This recipe we found online is so easy to make, and we can confirm it tastes DELICIOUS. Make this yummy salad for your next office lunch and let us know how you go with it over on Instagram @adriftclothing, or down below in the comments!
