Byron Bay Chilli Co: Fiery Coconut Pasta Salad

In Spicy Side Dishes by Mark MaskerLeave a Comment

Pasta salad is one of our favorite go-to’s for summer dining. Byron Bay Chilli Co. makes theirs even more summery via the use of their Fiery Coconut Chilli Sauce. Their version calls for grilled chicken breast but you could just as easily sub in shrimp if you’re feeling like seafood.
