Enjoy the late summer with this summery pasta salad with green beans, tomato, chard, basil and red leicester. You don’t make a dressing for this salad, but you eat it with homemade grape jelly. You can use blackcurrant jam instead of grape jelly.

Seasonal food

Green beans are still harvested in September and if we get a good late summer, tomatoes can also be harvested. Cooking with fresh vegetables of the season contain more vitamins and are less harmful to the environment and generally more affordable.
