Pasta salad, figs mozzarella ham

Here is a recipe really very tasty and easy to make. This fig mozzarella pasta salad can be made ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator until ready to serve. This is the same kind of recipe that I published a few years ago using melon and ham. Obviously, it’s not the season for figs, I used those in my freezer during confinement, so as not to multiply the outings and to renew the menu of the canteen ? These are the type of ingredients that work very well together and the result is a nice dish full of flavor and visually very appetizing. It doesn’t take very long to cook and it is very tasty. Enjoy your lunch !
