  • Rotini Pasta – Substitute the Rotini Pasta with Penne or fusilli pasta. Use what you prefer.

  • Grape Tomatoes, halved – Roma tomatoes, cherry tomatoes or regular tomatoes can also be used.
  • Red Onion, sliced – I love the pop of color it gives the pasta salad. But it can also be omitted if you do not like onions.

Expert Tips

  • Cook Pasta – This is a great recipe to make the pasta ahead of time. This gives it time to cool off the pasta before adding in the other ingredients.
  • Prepare Vegetables – For best results, we like to chop the vegetables about the same size. We recommend bite size pieces so the pasta salad is easier to eat.
  • Combining Ingredients – For the best flavor, make this salad the day before serving. This helps to allow the dressing and seasoning to marinate into the pasta.
