Today's Pasta Salad it is a very special one for me, although you can use almost any combination of ingredients, I have specially found this one to be a very delicious and very refreshing one during the hottest months of the year.
This is a cold Salad that represents a beautiful and balanced mixture of of salty flavours (Spanish Ham, of course you can use Proscciutto Ham too in stead), sweet flavors (Sultanas, Crab Sticks, Pinenuts), and other milder flavours (Boiled Eggs and Mayonaisse).
