It’s Sunday, it’s almost August (what) and I hope you’re still celebrating all things summer with plenty of BBQ’s + patio hangouts. I don’t know about you, but I’m a firm believer that no summer cookout is complete without a delicious pasta salad packed with a rainbow of produce.
Anyone else grow up with bowls of the mayo-filled goods? Everyone, right?
I’m here to change that up with 18 of the BEST healthy pasta salad recipes that you’ll probably ever try. I asked my blogger friends to send me their #1 pasta salad recipes and let me tell you, I can’t wait to work my way through this list. We’ve got pretty much every type of noodle, every summer veggie, and so many incredible flavor combinations. There are a few gluten free options, too, but you can always swap the noodle for your go-to gf version.
My favorite about pasta salads? The delicious leftovers for weekday lunches! Truly can’t beat it.
Take a scroll through these gorgeous recipes and get ready to enjoy the best of summer. Xoxo!
