How to make the fresh basil and parsley spaghetti salad
This dish is so easy to make and doesn’t take long at all.
Layer the ingredients in a bowl as you chop them up. Mix them together and add the freshly cooked spaghetti on top. Mix again and serve straight away. the fresh herbs add such a wonderful flavour and mixed with the vinegar dressing it is a lovely taste.
